How to lose weight with breastfeeding after cesarean
If, after natural birth, a woman can quickly return to physical stress and training, then after cesarean section, some heavy physical activity is forbidden for the first few months after the operation.
They can lead to complications in the form of divergence of the suture on the abdominal wall or on the uterus with the appearance of bleeding. Therefore, the first time about training in the fight against obesity is worth forgetting.
Therefore, after the operation, it is worth paying attention to breastfeeding and proper nutrition, so that gradually and smoothly lose excess weight.
If you put the baby on demand, while not eating an excess of calories, the weight will gradually go away. As the confident cicatrix on the uterus forms, approximately by the end of the first year of breastfeeding, one can begin physical exercises with loads.
A particularly problematic area after cesarean section will be the abdomen. After natural birth, it can be tightened with exercises on the press, which can be started gradually after a month after delivery.
But with caesarean section it is worthwhile to postpone these exercises for at least 4-6 months from the time of surgery, depending on the condition.
In the presence of free time, you can make light torsion of the trunk, which will lead to muscle tension on the abdomen without increased intra-abdominal pressure.
