After Delivery

Take care of yourself through the first days after delivery

I want to share with you, first time mom, some tips that can help you cope with some of the physical and emotional changes which usually occur after delivery.

During the first hour after my vaginal delivery, my adrenalin was so high that I thought I could do anything at that moment. A few hours later it turned over, I was exhausted.

In doctor's words, a profound fall in the levels of the pregnancy hormones causes physical changes which can last several weeks after giving birth.

As a first time mom I didn't know how to relieve the pain and to care for myself. After each delivery I studied something new about recovering. I suggest you read and use these tips that will help you recover more quickly after the delivery of your child.
