6 Best Methods To Get Rid Of Post Pregnancy Belly At Home

Get Rid of Belly Fat | Post- Pregnancy Belly Issues | How to Get Flat Tummy | 5 Best Ways To Get Slimmer Waist | No Saggier Abs

After having a baby most women have the concern on how to lose their belly fat and get back that old slim looking one. Some women are blessed with a small tummy during their pregnancy and hence getting rid of that would be much easier than for those who had a big belly throughout their pregnancy.

Seeming to be pregnant even after delivery can be really disheartening. But, imagine your stomach took nine months to stretch fully and accommodate your baby safely. Hence it would definitely take some time to come back to the prenatal state.

Though the hormonal changes post-delivery will automatically reduce the tummy to a great extent, there are few other methods that you can follow to speed up the process of losing the belly fat completely. This article will help you in knowing those methods and tips so that you will be a few more steps closer to your goal.

Things To remember -

  1. Every woman is different. These steps or methods may not show equal results for all. Some may have quick results while others may take more time. Anyhow, don’t lose faith and keep following it until you start seeing the results.

  2. If any exercise is making you feel uncomfortable or painful skip them and just practice the ones with which you are okay.

  3. Women who have undergone C-section should always wait until your stitch is fully cleared and doctors wave a green flag to perform the exercises or any other home treatments to reduce the belly.

  4. The methods which I would be sharing is something that has really worked for me and is totally safe. Then too never force yourself into anything that is not suiting physically or mentally.

Best Methods To Get Rid of The Post-Pregnancy Belly at Home

As I mentioned before the grown belly will definitely require at least 8-9 months for the reverse process. Hence have patience and be regular in following these methods to achieve the best results.

Other than hormonal changes, the fluids, extra food you consumed to nourish your baby gets stored in the form of fat which needs some time and proper care to shed out completely. So here are the best ways to get back the slim and sexy belly as before -

1) Breastfeeding your baby

If you are someone who wants to lose both belly fat and full body weight then trust me breastfeeding can be the best way to achieve it. Breastfeeding your infant not only boosts their immunity but also reduces the body and belly fat over time.

This happens because it speeds up the process of shrinking the uterus thus shedding the belly fat. In addition to that when you breast-feed, you use fat cells stored in your body during pregnancy along with calories from your diet to fuel your milk production and feed your baby. Thus helping in weight loss too.

2) Belly Wrap or Waistband -

Waist /belly wraps also known as maternity belts help you in the process of tucking your abs. You must have also noticed or heard about many nannies using a cotton saree / any cloth to wrap around the waist tightly every day after delivery in order to reduce the belly fat.

This is an old fashioned method but still is incorporated by many people. It also improves posture and reduces back pain. Today we also have the maternity belts which are easily available in the market.

Go for the one that is comfortable for you. You can also talk to your doctor for any guidance. The only vital thing is that you should wear it daily so as to see the results on your body.

3) Exercises -

Even though you might not have exercised ever in your life, after delivery it has to be your priority in order to achieve your slim belly desire.

Some of them are -

  • Walking - The most effective and simplest exercise that can give you amazing results in getting rid of your belly pooch and body weight. Walk for half an hour daily to get the best results.

  • Breathing exercises - Inhaling and exhaling not only helps in abdomen contractions but also in reducing stress and toning your abs and belly. It keeps you refreshed and energetic throughout the day. So make sure you make it a practice of doing it in the mornings after waking up.

  • Kegels - This classic exercise will help you tone bladder muscles thus accelerating it’s shrinking process.

  • Bow Pose ( Dhanurasana) - This should be done after 5-6 months post-delivery as your body might not support this exercise before that. Especially ladies who have had a C-section. Doing this will definitely help you in achieving the slimmer tummy that you always dreamt of.

  • Belly Exercise - This is an old granny method that was told to me by my aunt. Here you need to just lie down straight on a bed. Then lock your toes with each other and press your belly button with your right-hand thumb. Now start inhaling and exhaling deeply so that you feel the contractions in your stomach. Repeat this daily for at least 20 mins.

I have tried this method and used to follow it regularly. My belly has gone back to the normal state pretty soon and I really believe this exercise can be one reason for that. But first, you must talk to your doctor to know if there are any exercises that you must avoid, especially for the c-sectioned ladies.

4) Hot steaming method -

I am not sure if you would be aware of this home treatment. Here basically after having a good oil massage, a thick cloth is dipped into hot water and after squeezing the extra water content, the cloth is wrapped /pressed on our belly tightly until the cloth loses its complete heat.

This is also an old day method. At first, it feels as if our skin is burning but after 2-3 days we get used to it. This is believed to be a very effective method to break down the fat on your stomach. You can definitely give it a shot if you feel you can withstand the hot towel sessions. Else just skip this and go for other methods.

5) Oil Massaging -

It’s very important to have a good warm oil massage daily after delivery to trigger the process of weight loss and getting a flat belly. Perform a massage that targets your belly. Having an oil massage will release and distribute fat in the body and also keep you refreshed and hydrated. Other than that it will also reduce your stretch marks to a great extent.

However, for c-sectioned ladies, it’s recommended to get an oil massage on your belly after your stitch is completely dried.

I also want to mention two miracle oils that I came across and have really been effective for me.

6) A Healthy & Balanced Diet -

Diet doesn’t mean to skip your meals so as to become slim as you were before. This decision can be the worst both for you and your baby. Doing so will not allow your child to get the required nutrients from breast milk.

Whatever you eat is broken down and added as a nutrient to the milk which your baby feeds on. Hence It is crucial that you maintain your diet to produce enough nutritious milk to maintain the metabolic cycle of the newborn baby.

Drink lots of water, eat small frequent meals, including all types of food which are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, and carbohydrates. Eating a balanced diet will also help in reducing the belly by increasing your lactating / nursing.

Belly fat/saggy abs are stubborn and hence difficult to get rid of them completely.

Down the line from delivery, you would have shed all the excess fat that was gained during pregnancy. But in case your belly still remains big, then follow these effective methods mentioned above properly and regularly. So, make a resolution today and start practicing them. Take my are gonna watch your belly fat vanish completely!!
