Postpartum Physical Changes

Postpartum Physical Changes

A woman’s body undergoes many changes after she gives birth.  It’s helpful to learn about these postpartum changes and ways you can help yourself.  If you have had a caesarian section, you r experience in the postpartum period will be different.  You will need additional help and support.

It’s a good idea after you give birth to review your pregnancy and any complications that developed.  The Postpartum Mother’s Health Record can be used in the first year after your baby’s birth to help you and your health care provider improve your health and reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
