PREGNANCY / CHILDBIRTH :: Labor and Delivery

Postpartum Care

The postpartum period begins after the delivery of the baby and ends when the mother's body has returned as closely as possible to its pre-pregnant state. This period usually lasts six to eight weeks.

The postpartum period involves the mother progressing through many changes, both emotionally and physically, while learning how to deal with all the changes and adjustments required in becoming a new mother. The postpartum period also involves the parents learning how to care for their newborn and learning how to function as a changed family unit.

Listed in the directory below, you will find information regarding postpartum care, for which we have provided a brief overview.
