You have achieved one of the most remarkable things in life: give birth to another human being.
Having your baby finally arrived after 9 months is definitely a joyous moment, and you may be compelled to give all your focus and energy during the coming weeks and months to your baby. Coupled with all the physical, mental, emotional and social changes a new mum is adjusting to, it is easy to neglect or overlook your own health.
But remember, no matter how your delivery looked like, be it natural or caesarean (C-section); easy or complicated; a quick labour our you have laboured for a few days, your body has certainly gone through a trauma. Your body is going to need time to recover.
Conventionally, postpartum period is considered to be the first 6 weeks following delivery, with the conclusion of a postpartum check-up with your gynae. But in actual fact, fully recovering from pregnancy and childbirth can be up to 6 months or longer.
Some organs may take shorter or longer time to return to their pre-pregnancy state than the others. For example:
As such, the 4th trimester, the time between birth and 12 weeks postpartum is now gaining increasing attention medically. These 12 weeks after giving birth are a critical time to focus on mum and make sure that you are healthy moving forward.
