    I have gained weight right after giving birth to my child. I’m about 60 pounds heavier than before I got pregnant. I have been trying workouts and exercises, but just can’t get back to 160 pounds. Is there anything that I can do to lose the excess weight? One of my friends suggested to take the mommy makeover procedure from any nearby plastic surgery clinic in Mississauga. She said that it is an easy cost-effective procedure that helps the need to return to multiple surgeries. But I am worried about my child. I don’t know if it’ll be safe for my child as I’m still breastfeeding. Should I take the procedure? Has anyone experienced this? What have you all done to lose weight after the pregnancy? Please share.

    Hello For many women, weight changes are often interrupted by pregnancy. But some people like me gained weight. Later the doctor explained everything to me and I want to tell you not to be fat.
    Avoid weight gain during pregnancy
    We must avoid being overweight during pregnancy. You do not eat for two; you eat for one and a little bit.
    Regularly perform exercises during pregnancy
    The weight of a woman grows in fact, it is mostly water weight and the placenta. To achieve these goals, women should ensure that they begin or perform the exercise during pregnancy, from 30 to 50 minutes per day of walking at least five days a week.
    Postnatal weight gain: thyroid, stress or sleepless nights
    Now, women often find it difficult to lose weight after birth, even with breastfeeding, and many continue to gain weight. Some women develop a low thyroid function during and after pregnancy, so if you have problems with weight gain, talk to your OB at visit after childbirth and, possibly, check the thyroid gland.
    Women who are sleepless gain weight. The study showed that women who slept less than five hours a day, six months after birth, were three times more likely to hold their child’s weight and, perhaps, even receive more.
    And, finally, being a new mom is stressful, and stressful hormones can contribute to weight gain, and women are more likely to eat when their stress is. So, you go, thyroid problems, insomnia and stress contribute to weight gain after childbirth.
    All the best to you and your baby.
