What is Postpartum?

 

The postpartum period consists of the moment right after birth and the subsequent six weeks following childbirth.

This is the duration of time it takes for your uterus to revert back to its pre-pregnancy size. Postpartum is just as significant as any other chapter of the pregnancy and birthing process, yet current books and research solely focus on the baby, while you, the mom, drifts in the background like an insignificant participant. During pregnancy, labor, and birth of your baby, your overall health is depleted. Since you were constantly giving your nutrient stores to your baby, it is absolutely essential that you are replenished and cared for after birth. If you don’t take care of yourself after the birth of your baby, it may have a lasting negative impact in your overall health and well-being.
