After delivery c section or normal ...abdominal and pelvic muscles loses its tone and it is very important to maintain the same after delivery, for abdominal strength, to maintain stability of spine for prevention of back ache,good tone in abdominals for future baby, to avoid incontinence and have good sexual feel.

Aerobics like swimming walking bicycling atleast 4 times a week.

During initial days breast feeding helps to reduce fat.
Try to follow balqnced diet that includes lot of calcium, iron, proteins which
