Once your baby is 6 weeks old and you've had your post-natal check-up, you're welcome to join a group or return to your group.
Why the 6 week delay? We recommend members consult their doctor or health visitor for advice before beginning to slim after giving birth. As long as they're happy for you to start slimming (this is usually after your 6 week post-natal check up), we will be delighted to help support you in reaching your weight loss goals.
Your body needs extra energy and calcium while you're breast-feeding and we recommend you increase your Healthy Extra choices, the number of which will vary depending on the age of your baby.
In group, your Consultant will be able to explain this in more detail and give you a copy of our pregnancy and breast-feeding booklet.
Online only members will find the same information in our ‘Food Optimising and breast-feeding’ fact sheet, which you will have access to when you join Slimming World Online.
