How long does it take for a woman's hips to shrink after pregnancy?


Answer by  okcmouseketeer (779)

It will take anywhere from 3-9 months. Once cleared by a doctor, you can do exercises that focus on hip and leg movements, which will decrease this time.

After pregnancy there will take many changes to woman's body. It takes a longer time to shrink your hip after pregnancy. I exercise will help you in this case.

Your body will never be the same after pregnancy. You will be out of maternity clothes within 6 weeks, and with work should be back to normal within 3 months.


Answer by  Moi (88)

It depends on the woman, her fat distribution, her diet and her pre-pregnancy eating and exercising habits. Most women gain 20+ lbs during pregnancy - some of which is the baby itself and the rest is a mixture of fluid and fat. The fluid is usually lost at birth, the rest will have to be shed via diet and exercise.

A loaded question indeed! If you are talking about baby fat deposits, that is up to your body, diet and exercise. Genetics may play a part too. You have to keep in mind however, when you look at the spread of the pelvic girdle to accommodate the birth of a vaginal delivery, some spread in this region may be permanent.
