I just gave birth to a baby girl. It was through   c-section. I need to reduce my tummy. Please let me know how can I reduce my tummy.?

Slowly, deliberately: Like any other abdominal surgery, cesarean section requires >3-6 weeks of recovery time before engaging in any exercise regimen. Diet and exercise are always recommended for weight loss (in that order). If you breastfeed, you will likely shed the extra weight more quickly, although diet and lactation do not mix well (may decrease your milk production). Swimming, treadmill and stationary bike work! ...Read more
