Sim­ple post-preg­nancy ex­er­cises to get your mojo back

Wait six weeks if you’ve had your baby vagi­nally, or 12 weeks if you’ve had a cae­sarean, and check with your mid­wife that it’s OK to start ex­er­cis­ing.

Ac­ti­vat­ing the mus­cles in your pelvic floor be­fore you do these ex­er­cises will in­crease the ben­e­fit. Squeeze around your vagina and bot­tom and pull your tummy but­ton in to­wards your spine, then re­lease. Do three sets of 20 rep­e­ti­tions.
