Postpartum problems

Seeing your little one for the first time can be a very emotional moment. So, now that you have bought your baby to this world, what can you as a mother expect in the next few days. Post part period usually begins immediately after delivery and lasts for a few weeks and months following your baby’s birth. Your body has gone through enormous changes during pregnancy. 

You have gone through a lot physically, mentally and emotionally. This is the time for you to rebuild your body and begin to regain your pre-pregnancy shape.

The more you know about what to expect, the better prepared you will be able to cope during this time. Make sure you have a lot of support from your spouse, relatives, and friends.
