Hi, I dont have any exercise suggestions, but most doctors advise that you dont do any exercise until you are 6 weeks PP to avoid injuring yourself. Your body needs time to heal.


There are post natal exercise vidoes which take you through a simple work out made specifically for new moms. The one I had was in 10 minute intervals also so that I could do 10, 20 or 30 minutes of it, whatever I had time for.

Definitely wait the 6 weeks and be sure to clear any exercises with your doc before you begin. There is a post here on this board about post c-section exercise I would print off the list of exercises and take it to your doc and ask if they are ok to start doing.

here is the link to the post and keep us posted.
