Starting a fitness programme is always daunting.
But even though it is even tougher with the demands of a small baby, the advice is to make time for fitness after pregnancy.
The first stop for fitness advice is the midwife or health visitor who can give advice on special exercises following the birth.
There are specialist keep fit videos and gyms can also offer fitness regimes for new mums.
Midwives at your local hospital will also have a programme to share.
