Question C-section "pouch"

I had my second c-section a few months ago. After my first one I did not have any trouble getting back into shape, but this time is different! No matter how many crunches I do (and believe me I do a lot) I can't get rid of this "pouch". So I was wondering if anyone has any advice for an ab workout that focusing on the lower part of the abs? Thanks

Re: C-section "pouch"

I had both styles done. The traditional vertical 21 years ago and the "bikini" nearly 18 years ago. Figured my abs are really messed up. But when I started lifting freeweights, I asked around if it was possible to get this part firmed up....after my stomach fat eventually leaves. ( I know, I know...it it diet, exercise and patience...no such thing as "spot reducing")

I was told by others who had ceasareans/hysterectomies and exercised.....it will eventually firm up but it takes patience and time.
