Congratulations dear mother on the arrival of your baby! Bringing forth your tiny bundle of joy can be a very memorable but overwhelming event; an experience not to be underestimated. From the very first moments of pregnancy to the last stages of labour through to delivery, your body has gone through some strain, and physiological changes and it will take some time for it to transit back to its non-pregnant state. Just as pregnancy and women differ, transitional phases are equally different too. The postpartum period may vary from several weeks to several months.
