The skin around there can get saggy, stretchy, and bigger.

Old wives in Nigeria have found ways around it from times past.

Here are natural ways to get rid of post-pregnancy belly fat:

1. Hot water press

While a new mother is having her bath, the old wife would press all the parts of her body with hot water, apparently to help her to return to her former body.

2. Drinking hot tea or alcohol

From the day she gives birth, she is not supposed to take cold drinks. All the water she takes in must be hot, or she could take alcoholic drinks in a bid to reduce her belly.

3. Do not eat starchy foods.

New mothers should not eat starchy foods like Eba, Semo, and Pounded Yam. Keep the food light, and take a lot of pap without sugar or milk.

Do not sit or lay down after eating, walk around for a few minutes.

5. Tie your tummy with a piece of cloth or girdle

Months after having a baby, tie your tummy with any cloth or wear a girdle so your tummy would return to its normal size.
