Hips, thighs and bum

Your Baby & Toddler - - Just for You -

YOUR PROB­LEM

No­to­ri­ous prob­lem ar­eas for women, the hips, thighs and bum also take strain dur­ing and af­ter preg­nancy. Mostly this is be­cause nutri­tion and ac­tiv­ity lev­els tend to change (for the worse) dur­ing preg­nancy, and so you put weight on where women most of­ten put on weight – th­ese ar­eas.

THE SO­LU­TION

Post-baby weight can take a long time to shed; so don’t aim to be back in those skinny jeans too quickly. Dras­tic ex­er­cise and diet plans can be very detri­men­tal, and don’t for­get all the work that your body did to carry that baby for you! Stick to a healthy, bal­anced diet and do ex­er­cises that tar­get mul­ti­ple mus­cles, par­tic­u­larly in this area.
