Recovering from childbirth is a difficult and long process. After childbirth – the strongest physical and psychological stress for women, even the past without features and give birth to healthy, long-awaited child. Therefore, a woman needs proper rest. For some time we got the hospital on the principle of “Mother and child” where the child from the first hours after birth, you’ll be near the mother.
The woman swells and enlarges Breasts, they produce colostrum, and then milk. The uterus continues to shrink, while a woman may feel light contractions, especially during breastfeeding, when the baby sucks intensively. During contraction the damaged surface on the wall of the uterus that arose after the rejection of the placenta, begins to drag on. With the wounds go postnatal discharge consisting of blood, tissue particles and blood secretion. Immediately after birth, the uterus weighs 1 kg. For the following six weeks she takes your normal weight – 50-60 gr. Spotting pass through the first two days. They can be quite active, more strong than in the first days of menstruation. After that, the discharge becomes less intense. Postnatal discharge, called lochia, last 5-6 weeks after giving birth to a full contractions of the uterus to its normal size. This period is called postpartum.
