What happen to a Mommy’s Belly after giving birth?

Stretch marks after birth

The first few weeks after giving birth is a struggle for many Mummies.For sure, moms often feel intense pressure.

As a new mom there are many challenges we have to go through that we didn’t expect while we were pregnant. The real challenge of caring for a newborn who seeks for your attention all the time, sleep deprivation, sore breasts, and back pains are just some of the changes Mummies face during this period.

One part of the body that takes on several changes is the Mummy’s belly. During this time, your uterus is most likely still the size of a cantaloupe. Your belly may be squishier and rounder than you expected after birth.

Here are the changes that happen to the belly after childbirth:
• Diastasis recti – pregnancy can cause the tissue between the rectus abdominis muscles to expand, leading to a bulge in the midsection some
• Your stomach muscles are still stretched out. 
• The dark line called linea nigra won’t go away in a snap. 
• Stretch marks will most likely appear on your stomach.You may have them also on your buttocks, thighs and breasts .

Give yourself time to heal. It is important to ensure complete recovery and total recuperation before considering post-partum weight loss programme..
