Stomach pooch after pregnancy

by Jennifer

After 2 children my stomach has dropped considerably causing a pooch, which disgusts me, and I just wondered if there was any ab exercises I could do that may reduce or firm this area. I'm really desperate for some good advice.


Thanks for your question. It is a common one many women face. Many people want the "quick fix" and "miracle exercise" to flatten their abs. There are exercises that can help, but it is also important to realize that spot reduction in and of itself doesn't work. I wish it did because it would make things so much easier :)

In order to get the best results, you also need to incorporate aerobic exercise and strength training to burn calories and increase your metabolism.

My favorite exercises are on the ball. I have a free abs ball routine you can view here:

I have a colleague who has specialized in helping women get their pre-pregnancy figure back. Her name is Holly Rigsby and she has written a book called Fit Yummy Mummy.

Here's an article she's written that may help answer your question. I'd also recommend checking out her website and getting her free report, "The Five Ways to Boost Your Metabolism."
