Depends on situation: I have had jazercise teachers that delivered naturally & started teaching classes a week later & other moms that had a c-section birth & were limited for 2 months. Pre-pregnancy health, health during pregnancy & the complications of delivery all impact this time frame. Each case is in some way unique.
