when can I jogg or run after c-section??

Harpreet Kaur

you can Start walking after 3 months. but better to avoid running n other exercise till 6 months.


light exercise like pranayam can be done after 3 months but u should wait atleast 6 months to do heavy work out.


But I have heard that stomach muscles gets hard after 6 months. Everything has to be done within 6 months of c-section delivery. After that weight loss is not possible. Is it so?

DrRaman SherGill

yes Amita i have heard it same...to loose wt we have to do it in these first 6 mnths

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Hi, u can walk till 6 months n start jogging after 6 months. But, what u need whether it is normal or C sec is, strengthening ur tummy muscles, pelvic floor muscles, back muscles. For this, visit obstetric physiotherapist who can assess ur muscle power n teach u proper exercises. So that u can prevent sagging of abs, urine leaking when u cough, back ache etc.. So till 6 months, u can concentrate on strengthening n walking... Later on loosing overall weight.
