Your Body After Childbirth
Having a baby changes your body. You may not like the changes, or you may enjoy feeling different, more like a mother. If you like the way you are, dont let other people tell you different.
If you feel uncomfortable with your body youll want to make some changes. Some things will never be quite the same again for example, stretch marks will fade, but wont ever go away completely.
Other changes need not be permanent. A saggy tummy can be tightened up with exercise, and weight gain will gradually drop off if you eat and exercise sensibly. But dont expect any of this to happen overnight. It took nine months to make a baby. Give yourself at least that long to get back into shape again and it may take longer.
In the meantime, give your body some little treats to cheer you up.
For example, if it makes you feel good to paint your toenails, then make time to do it. Maybe for you thats even more important than 20 minutes extra sleep.
