  • Your doctor should clear you first, usually at your 6 week check up.

  • They recommend 6 weeks. You can do walking and light exercise but nothing strenuous. Especially the tummy muscles.

  • There are some things you can do almost right away if you have a normal vaginal delivery. They will give you info at the hospital or birth center.
