How To Video: Postpartum Exercises to Get Your Pre-Baby Body Back

authored by Gwynn Cassidy

As a new mom it's nearly impossible to find time to exercise. And, even if I could find the time, who would watch my little guy for me? Since I would love to get my pre-baby body back, Gideon and I enjoyed a little Mommy & Me workout with the help and guidance of Leslie McNabb, HealthyWomen.org's Fitness Expert. What's really great about these exercises is that you can do them at home alone or with your little one.

Watch our video and visit our Ask the Trainer section for full descriptions and photos of the exercises she recommends to her new mom clients.

Yes this is really natural. New moms can really see that it can be fun, not take away from time with baby and still get the job done. Kudos

It's me again (wrote yesterday I was going to start exercising). Well, I didn't start yesterday but I did this morning! Nothing to crazy but it felt so good to move my body again and feel like I was doing something for myself. My little Anna really enjoyed herself too. Thank you!

Will you be doing more of these? I need a whole workout plan :0 ha ha ha

Are you the same Gwynn Cassidy from IVillage? If so, I was a fan of your newsletters. I'm trying to get pregnant and, once I do, I imagine I'll have to stop using a lot of my antiaging stuff. Is that true?

Hi Glossygurl,

Yup, it's me! So glad you found HealthyWomen.org and this blog.

Yes, you should absolutely adjust your skin and hair care product usage while pregnant and breastfeeding.

Check back tomorrow for a rundown of the Do's and Don'ts of Looking Great While Pregnant.

Thanks so much,
Gwynn
