5 Don’ts for Postpartum Exercise

  1. Don’t progress too quickly.
  2. Don’t feel like you’ve failed – set smaller goals for yourself.
  3. Forget you are healing and lack of sleep isn’t helping either.
  4. Don’t compare yourself to anyone (it’s not a linear progression).
  5. Don’t do nothing for the first 6 weeks and then go for a run if you like running.
