Postnatal care is one of the most neglected aspects of a new mother’s health. With a newborn taking most of the attention, it is easy to forget the changes that have happened to your body over the last 9 months.
The postpartum period or postnatal period is the period beginning immediately after the birth of a child and extending for about 6 weeks in which the mother’s body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state. During this period, the mother goes through many physical and emotional changes while learning to care for her newborn.
Normally, the uterus not only returns to its pre-pregnant size, but it also returns to its normal position in the pelvic cavity and regains its muscular tone. The vagina, uterine ligaments, and muscles of the pelvic floor also revert back to the pre-pregnant state. After childbirth, the uterus may be at a lower position and may need assistance returning to its normal position. This is known as prolapse and symptoms include a feeling of heaviness, increased sensation of the need to urinate, and constipation.
