post baby body

Yes, you CAN have flat abs after baby!

There is a far healthier, safer and noninvasive alternative to a tummy tuck. And unlike a tummy tuck, you don’t need to wait until you’re done having kids to enjoy a taut and toned tummy. The secret to achieving firm, flat abs post-pregnancy is correct activation of your deep core muscles. Beware of traditional abs exercises – any movement that bulges the abdominal wall forward, such as crunches, sit-ups, and many Pilates-based exercises, will actually worsen a post-pregnancy pooch and deter you from a rocking post baby body.

Real moms can indeed achieve firm, flat abs and beautiful waistlines shortly after pregnancy in just minutes a day –even after delivering full-term twins via C-section! Check out these before/after photos of Sheelagh, a mom who participated in The Dia Method postnatal fitness class. In the ‘after’ photo, Sheelagh’s twin boys are only 3 ½ months old!


Sheelagh lost 4 1/8 inches off her waist in just 8 weeks. Anna (at top), who delivered a 10-lb. baby, lost 3 ½ inches in 10 weeks. And Atoussa, who successfully lost the baby weight she had accumulated from two pregnancies, narrowed her waist by 5 7/8 inches in 10 weeks and recovered abdominal tone she had thought she’d lost forever. These are real results for real women, all three different body types. Moms of all ages can recover amazing abs without surgery – it’s never too late. It’s not magic, and it does require work. But your post baby body is entirely within reach.
