Tips For Getting Rid of a Flat Butt After Pregnancy

Have your buttocks turned from a voluminous, curvy spectacle to deflated appearance? You're not alone in the struggle. Pregnancy can change the shape and feel of your buttocks, but there are tips you can follow to help counteract or treat the effects of motherhood.

Why Do We Have A Flat Butt After Pregnancy?

A flat butt after pregnancy (sometimes called a mom's butt) is a byproduct that makes your buttocks appear flatter, less firm, and large. 

You might also notice that your abdomen and upper legs have more excess fat and loose skin than before your pregnancy. All these things are normal, given that your body naturally prepares to create more space and stability when bearing a child.

How Does Pregnancy Change Your Buttocks?

Your Body Changes

Your abdomen is not the only body area that expands during childbearing.

A study conducted in 2015 found that lumbar spine curvature increased by 41% within a 12 to 32-week gestation period. As mentioned before, your hips also widen throughout pregnancy to prepare the body for delivery. These changes can alter your posture, stopping you from activating your glute muscles as much as before.

Hormonal Fluctuations

When pregnant, your body produces an extra amount of relaxin. This hormone can relax your tendons, ligaments, and muscles around the pelvis because it will facilitate giving birth. While it has its clear benefit, releasing relaxin has the indirect side effect of changing the shape of your buttocks due to the surrounding musculature becoming less tense and more relaxed.

Your Activity Levels Decrease

It's normal to be less active when pregnant. After all, going through nine months and giving birth to a child is a challenging job! But, the drop in exercise and other forms of physical activity will eventually lead to drooping buttocks if prolonged.

Treating A Flat Butt Post-Pregnancy

Nutrition Goes A Long Way

Even though you're no longer in charge of feeding "two" bodies, you still need to commit to a nutritious diet after giving birth.

If you're nursing, you must add an additional 450 to 500 calories to your diet.

Great choices to add to your plate are:

  1. nuts
  2. eggs
  3. vegetables
  4. seeds
  5. low-fat dairy
  6. lean proteins

Exercise To Lose Fat And Strengthen Your Buttocks

No specific exercise routine guarantees you'll restore the volume of your buttocks, but a combination of cardio and strength training will help get the job done.

It would help if you aimed to do about 150 to 300 minutes of moderate-intensity cardio to maintain weight while combining it with strength training to build a more defined musculature for the buttocks.

Exercise include:

  1. glute bridge
  2. donkey kicks
  3. walking lunge
  4. jumping squats
  5. single-leg deadlift
