Apple today added a new line of postpartum workouts to Fitness+ to help moms get back to regular physical activity after giving birth.

Apple Fitness Plus feature
Almost a year after Apple launched new Fitness+ workouts for pregnant women, the company today launched a line of workouts for the postpartum period. The series, titled “Get Back to Fitness After Having a Baby,” contains seven workouts in the Core, Strength and Mindful Cooldown categories.

This program is designed for anyone who has recently had a baby, with workouts that can help you feel stronger and more energetic as you face the daily demands of parenthood. Core workouts involve reconnecting to your core, strengthening your abs and back, and working your pelvic floor. The series begins with a core workout to help you build a foundation to get stronger and avoid setbacks. There are also upper body, lower body, and total body strength workouts that use a light to medium barbell or just your body weight. And the Mindful Cooldowns include stretches that target common post-pregnancy pain points, as well as meditations that focus on themes like patience and self-care. Throughout, there are exercise options to help you feel more comfortable no matter what kind of birth you’ve had. You can do any of the workouts alone or in combination with other workouts from this program or from the Fitness+ library. Check with your health care provider before beginning any exercise.

CBS reports that some of the new workouts target the pelvic floor to help strengthen the muscles supporting the organs in the pelvis that relax during childbirth. There are modifications for different intensity levels depending on the preferred level of activity after childbirth, and mindful cooldowns include messages about the importance of patience and self-care for new parents.

Priced at $9.99 per month, or available as part of the Apple One Premier plan at $29.95 per month, Apple Fitness+ is a subscription video workout service available in more than 20 countries across the world. A one-month free trial is available for all Apple Watch users.
