Post-Pregnancy or Postpartum Care

Congratulations, you're a mom! Don't worry if life doesn't feel quite like those fuzzy, idealized visions of motherhood just yet. Being a new mom means riding the emotional roller coaster of postpartum hormones, dealing with sleep deprivation, adjusting to your changing body, and recovering from childbirth.

It's normal to feel beat up after childbirth! Your body did an amazing thing, but it needs time to recover. Learn how you'll heal from a vaginal or cesarean birth, and how to handle postpartum issues like cramps, bleeding, sweating, pain, and fatigue. 
Usually most mom's bleed for a month (both vaginal or cesarean delivery).

Care and Tips:

  • Delivery is a rebirth to Mommy,  respect your body as much as possible.  Remember this is the only time that we can rest,  rest is the only key for our future health.  
  • Mom's body will be so weak that its better to  eat rice or light food at least for a month as it is easy to digest.
  • while cooking rice remember to add methi/ fenugreek  seeds  and garlic,  which will stimulate nursing.  for 1 cup rice add 1/4 tsp methi seeds and 2 to 3 garlic.
  • Occasionally a baby will be fussy at the breast or gassy after you eat a particular food. If you notice a pattern, avoid that food for a few days.
  • Gassy vegetable are cabbage,  cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, and peppers.  its better to avoid these vegetables for a while can be introduced slowly.
