    Losing That Baby Weight
    You've carried your baby for several months. Now that she's here, you couldn't be happier to see her beautiful face.

    Once the two of you settle into a routine, you'll probably be ready to start losing the weight you gained during pregnancy.

    From the moment the baby weight starts to accumulate on our bodies, the scheming begins about how to drop the pounds once the little one arrives. After your baby is born and your days gradually begin to regain somewhat of a routine, it’s time to put your ideas into action.

    If you’re not sure exactly how to begin, we have great ways to start  working your way back to your pre-pregnancy body - or even better!
