How does it feel to finally get your normal belly back? We bet it feels great. You went through the first acid test successfully, now’s the time for the second one friends. Here are a few postnatal care tips you must follow.
Monthly (or according to your doctor’s advice)
You’re most vulnerable during your post-pregnancy period. ‘I went for regular checkups for my blood pressure, sugar, muscular tears and discharges’, says Cathy, 30, a new mum. ‘Especially since I had a C-section, I had to be extra careful’. Don’t let any infection get the better of you.
Once you are out of hospital
Lucy recently opened our eyes to something very important that we’d like to share with all new moms out there. ‘The biggest postnatal mistake new mums make is that they start dieting to reduce their tummy line’. She’s right, friends. Do you know what she’s trying to get at? As a lactating mum, you actually have to increase the intake of nutrients in your body. Check with your nutritionist to get a great nutrient rich diet plan.
After 10 weeks of delivery
We know you’re desperate to get rid of those post-preggie stretch marks on your tummy. ‘What was more important to me were not those stretch marks, but getting my sex life back’, says Martha, 27. But don’t be haphazard about exercising. Do it with your gynecologist’s consultation. Everyone has different reasons for getting back into shape. What’s yours?
