Activity after childbirth

 Active before? Return gradually. 

If you were already active before giving birth, returning gradually and building up activity slowly has benefits for your physical and mental wellbeing.

If you have an uncomplicated pregnancy and you're new to activity, starting gradually and building up your activity levels means you too can improve your physical and mental wellbeing. 

Not active before? Start gradually now.

If you're new to activity, starting gradually and building up your activity levels means you too can improve your physical and mental wellbeing.
