One of the major ways that many women use to lose weight after pregnancy is to engage in simple exercises at home. There are many exercises that can be done at home by women striving to lose weight after birth. Nevertheless, it is important to be cautious on what you do to ensure that you do not harm your body. You need to start with simple exercise and keep on increasing it as you recover. Do not engage in strenuous exercises until your body has regained its full strength. It is also important that you consult your doctor before engaging in any exercise.
You can start by walking for about twenty minutes per day. You can have your baby in the stroller as you do the walking.

This is very important because it helps in muscle-building resulting in increased rate at which calories are burned. You can also practice some yoga poses.
