Postpartum Support

Giving birth is a beautiful, but overwhelming experience.

The weeks after birth can bring a wash of emotions and many physical changes. Lack of sleep is to be expected, but there are other discomforts that can impact a new mom’s day-to-day experience, including healing time, unexpected physical side effects of birth, intimacy changes and lactation concerns. 

Don’t Skip Postpartum Care

Birth can be difficult both physically and emotionally, but proper postpartum care can help. During a regular postpartum appointment, your obstetrical provider will check on both your physical and emotional well-being. They can also provide any referrals for follow-up needs from psychiatric to urological. Getting this important after care will allow you to reduce your concerns and give you more time to focus on your baby.

Your provider is also just a phone call away at any time for any other concerns. If you don’t have an obstetrician/gynecologist, visit our find a provider page.
