Do gentle exercises for your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. Rock your pelvis while lying down. When standing, roll your pelvis in a circle. This will make you more comfortable, improve your bladder control and help you get your figure back.
Return to exercise slowly, and avoid intense or heavy exercise. Also avoid exercises that strain your pelvic floor and abdominals for at least 12 weeks. Talk to your GP or a physiotherapist about the right exercise for you.
After a while, try walking, swimming, Pilates or yoga. Everyone’s recovery is different. Your recovery might take longer if you’ve had a caesarean section, difficult labour or other issues like abdominal separation.
