All About Postpartum
The postpartum (or postnatal) period begins immediately after childbirth as the mother’s body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state. It is commonly defined as the six weeks after childbirth. This is a very important time for both you and your newborn baby as you adjust to each other and your expanded family.
In the first few hours and days after childbirth, you will experience many changes, both physically and emotionally. Find out more about the postpartum period in the next articles.
