The skin on the stomach after delivery does not look sensational. Probably stretch marks appeared, the skin lost its firmness, the navel got protruding, and in addition still linea negra (dark line running along the navel line). Calmly! Everything will be back to normal!
Linea negra, or "black line" appears in the second trimester of pregnancy and disappears by itself a few weeks after delivery. This line runs from the navel to the pubic symphysis, it is the effect of hormones.

What happens to the navel? Although it has been concave until now, in pregnancy I first become flat, and later usually convex. It was the growing uterus that pushed the navel out. However, this is also not a reason to worry, he will hide himself after delivery.

Worse thing with stretch marks ... This should have been taken care of during pregnancy, using appropriate preparations. Stretch marks are scars, if they have already appeared, we will not do much. Of course, we can use stretch marks, but they will prevent the appearance of new ones. Maybe they will improve the appearance of the existing ones a bit, but let's face it ... They won't disappear completely. We must try to like them ... or simply accept them.

What about the abdominal skin firmness? Here, finally, we have room to show off. Of course, we can exercise, but not earlier than about 6 weeks after delivery. Let's also remember not to force too much.

And below are suggestions for several preparations that firm the skin of the belly after delivery. It should be remembered that regardless of the preparation we use, we cannot forget about the massage. We massage the preparations into the skin in circular motions. Let's take some time and the results will definitely be better!
