 4 Moves to Target Your Mommy Tummy

Having a baby is such a wonderful experience, but sometimes we are left cringing at what we see in the mirror when we do not recognize ourselves. No postpartum body is the exact same-some women may bounce back perfectly while others generally require a good bit of time. After all, your body did take up to 40 weeks to change, stretch, and grow! Don't worry though-with time and hard work, you can get your sexy back in no time.

The best and number one thing that you can do for your postpartum body is to start a clean eating regimen by staying away from sweets, alcohol, and refined carbohydrates.

Practicing perfect posture and walking can do amazing things for your postpartum body as well! Unfortunately, there is no way to spot reduce your mommy tummy, but you can wake up those dormant Transverse Abdominus muscles to help flatten your tummy pouch.

Your transverse abdominal muscle, or TA,  is the most neglected muscle in your abdomen. They are the deepest core muscles and they form a natural girdle to support your entire middle section. Their main function is to stabilize your spine. They help to keep your organs in place, while putting pressure onto your abdomen. The development of the transverse muscles helps to tone and flatten your belly. You also can try wearing a postpartum girdle to support those muscles to get the same effect and to shrink your uterus back to its original size. Girdles also help heal diastasis recti; a condition in some postpartum women that involves the separation of the rectus abdominus muscle into right and left halves. However, there are some exercises that can help build those muscles back up from going dormant for so long.
