when can i start working out?

My daughter will be 3 weeks old on Monday and I had my postpartum checkup this past doctor didn't tell me when I could start working out again..

I feel great. Bleeding is very light.

When would you say I can start working out? Should I still wait to full 6 weeks?

  • Is there any way to call your doctor or his or her nurse? I had a Csection with my first and they wanted me to wait the 6 weeks.

  • ill be two weeks post partum tomorrow and ive been working out for a couple of days but i didnt tare or need stitches or anything and i also have very light bleeding.. it just depends on how well your delivery went and if you think you and your body are up to it already i just do very light stuff for now like short jogs and stretches and things to help my back out
