Post Pregnancy Workouts: When Is It Safe To Workout Out Post Pregnancy?

words Tammy Hembrow

The general rule of thumb for wanting to start working out post pregnancy is 6 weeks but as we are all different, you will need to check with your GP on when is safe to start working out post pregnancy. 


Once you have the all clear, gradually and progressively increasing your exercise intensity post pregnancy is the perfect way to help your body recover. Like when you were pregnant, remember to hydrate, breath and stick to your nutritious meal plan.
