Exercise after C-section: Wall sit

Once you get your doctor's permission to start exercising, try this gentle and safe exercise. Dara Bergeron, founder of Belly Bootcamp, leads you through a wall sit with a pelvic floor contraction. Start with two to three minutes of diaphragmatic breathing and then do eight to 20 reps of this move—only do as many as you can with good form. For a complete workout, try doing these five moves daily, slowly building up your reps. If you feel any pain or unusual pressure, talk to your doctor before exercising again.
