Is weight gain after child birth, a biggest issue to be discussed? I don't understand why people are much worried about the weight gain of celebrity women after delivery. Is this not a personal matter for the celebrity?
Read from this blog that Aishwarya rai Bachan has given birth to baby by normal delivery without the help of epidural at the age of 38. Isn't that a great thing itself? If you are a mother, you would understand how difficult it is to bear labor pains and deliver a child without the help of epidural.
After child birth,naturally skin and abdomen stretches a lot and after following strict healthy diet for breast feeding the baby, it is not easy to come back to normal weight within one year for any woman. It also depends on the body tendency, genes etc., However, with my experience i have jotted down some tips for weight loss after pregnancy.
- First and foremost rule is breast feed the baby. Some studies find that breast feeding exclusively will make weight loss faster.
- Exercise - Brisk walking is the simple thing that can be done as new mommy may not get much time/ break from baby sitting.Abdominal exercises can be started at later stage after consulting a doctor.
- Good sleep - this is impossible to achieve, since some children will wake up in the nights and mother cannot have a peaceful sleep of course until there is someone else to help.
- Diet - A healthy diet with all varieties of fruits and vegetables. Having green tea twice a day and avoiding heavy meals with rice in the dinner may help.
- Taking care of a baby itself is a big work out. breast feeding, playing with kid, cleaning, bathing the kid etc.,
- Try Yoga or hit gym if time permits. Iam sure this cannot be done at least until 6 months after delivery and that too only after consulting doctor if it is a Cesarean delivery.
