Weight After Pregnancy

You will probably have gained weight during pregnancy, but unfortunately you may continue to gain more weight after giving birth. During the first months following your child’s birth, breastfeeding, sleeping and bathing, having friends and family around to see your new baby, and muddling through sleepless nights, may make it difficult to eat healthy diets and do exercise. Coping with your weight may seem like the least important priority. But the child bearing years represent a time when you may start to gain unhealthy weight, and this may persist in later years. ------ 93340696

As a mother, you can play a critical role in ensuring the healthy lifestyle of your family. By maintaining a ‘moderately’ healthy lifestyle, you can encourage your child to adopt a good diet and to be active. But if you as a parent are consuming lots of chocolates, biscuits, crisps, take away food and sugary drinks, you can’t expect your children not to want them. This is a time to make positive changes to your lifestyle to achieve and maintain a healthy weight..
