Life will become very busy once your baby arrives and it can take time to adapt to new, often exhausting routines.
After pregnancy the body needs time to recover but many new mums are keen to regain their pre-pregnancy weight and figure. The best way to lose any excess weight is to eat healthily and to start to move around as soon as you feel able.
You will need to start slowly and then gradually increase the amount and intensity of any exercise you take. If you have had a Caesarean it will of course take you longer to recover. Your doctor will be able to advise you when you can start to exercise.
What should you eat when you're breastfeeding?
If you are breastfeeding it is important to continue eating a varied balanced diet that includes plenty of fruit, vegetables, starchy foods, fibre and protein.
Some breast fed babies may react to food you eat, if you think this is happening you should discuss it with your doctor.
