Being physically active in the postpartum period (after giving birth) is good for both you and your newborn. Exercise can relieve stress, give you more energy, and help you maintain a healthy weight. Being physically active has other rewards as well. Taking time for physical activity is a great way for you and your family to spend time together. It also sets a good example for your children to follow.
