You’ve done it. The hard part is over. You’ve given birth to your little bundle of joy. Getting your body back on track can be tough at the beginning, but there isn’t a better time to kick-start your post-pregnancy exercise routine than while you’re on maternity leave. And the good news is that it gets easier!

Fitness blogger AJ talks you through low-intensity exercises designed to strengthen your core, activate your abs and strengthen your pelvic-floor muscles. These quick postnatal exercises can be fitted in while your baby is sleeping, during the TV ad breaks, or whenever you get a few minutes to spare.

Always be mindful of your health, and don’t push yourself too hard – you’ve been pushing enough as it is. Get your body safely on the road to recovery by starting gently and building up the intensity a little more every day.
