Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

oooo good question I want to know this as well!
I was told to take it easy and not do alot after we had my daughter until the 6 week checkup.. however i also had an episiotomy and was in pain so I didnt really want to do alot lol.. I dont know if its suppose to be 6 weeks for most people or if it just depends sorry cant help more =)
You're supposed to wait until the 6 week check up to be released for anything physical (sex and exercise included!). Maddison09 it is supposed to be 6 weeks so don't worry. With my first it went bad enough I had to back at 4 weeks. Good luck girls :)
