Postpartum exercise: Workout for first six weeks after baby

Dara Bergeron, founder of Belly Bootcamp, shows you five safe moves that will help you realign your posture and close a diastasis recti. Remember, it's not about speed here, but perfect form and mindfulness. Start with two to three minutes of diaphragmatic breathing. And then do eight to 20 reps of each exercise—only do as many as you can with correct form. Repeat exercises daily. If you had a C-section, wait till you get your doctor's permission to being exercising and then try these five safe moves.
