exercise post partum?

Is there any harm in doing light work outs right after birth? I had my baby 9 days ago and i had an exercise ball that i bounced on during my pregnancy. Can i start working out with it? Can exercise be harmful if ur careful not to over do it?

I had a really easy labor, no tearing, no stitches and my body feels ready.

Don't try to stretch to much. I would say take it easy still until after your baby is a few weeks old.

Walking is fine. No ab excercises until your 8 weeks. It puts you at risk for uterine prolaspe.
