Pointers on natural childbirth, and recovery are coming from an unlikely source in recent times, international fashion model Gisele Bundchen. Whereas celebs are often accused of deliberately going under the knife and opting for C sections, Bundchen has shown how it is possible to do it naturally and do it the right way.
The Brazilian beauty claims that it was Kung Fu and Yoga that kept her weight gain in control during pregnancy and what also helped get her back in shape after her baby’s delivery.
Reportedly, she gained only 30 pounds during her pregnancy. Much of this weight would have been lost during the delivery and soon thereafter.
However, the reason for her getting back in shape so fast is the fact that she kept up with her fitness routine throughout pregnancy.
Also during her pregnancy she did not over indulge. She has a point when she said, “I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals.” It is true that many pregnant women think that pregnancy is an excuse to overeat, or eat just about anything they want, regardless of calorie or fat content.
As for a fitness routine, unless medically advised not to, a woman can carry right on with a fitness routine during several months of her pregnancy.
