How do I lose my extra weight after giving birth to my baby?

    Labor and baby birth    Lose my extra weight   

If you gained weight reasonably during your pregnancy, i.e. if you weight gain is in line with the recommendations given on the website, your extra fat reserves should not be too difficult to lose. The accumulated water retention will quickly evaporate after birth (sometimes during night swets).

Common wisdom often says that it took nine months to your body to make your baby, and that it will also take nine months to return to its original shape. Do not yield to the temptation to punish your body just to get into your favorite jeans a few weeks after birth, especially if you are breastfeeding, be patient and let Mother Nature do her work!
