I've never given birth naturally (DD was c/section) so I can't really say for sure..........but it sounds like stretching from giving birth and doing your pelvic floor exercises may help tone up loose skin again.
I would ask your midwife for advice if you're overly worried!!

Good Luck and congratulations on your new baby.
