2. Lactation and breast dredging

Therefore, it is necessary to promote lactation and dredge the breast after giving birth of.

3. Prevent urinary retention

A normal parturient woman urinates spontaneously for 4-6 hours. Failure to urinate for more than 8 hours is postpartum urinary retention. Postpartum urinary retention may be related to the following factors:

1) Anesthetics directly act on the pelvic floor and vaginal nerve muscles to reduce the contraction function of the bladder and easily cause urinary retention;

2) Prolonged labor during normal labor and prolonged compression of the bladder and urethra, resulting in decreased bladder function and urinary retention;

3) Suture of perineal incision and perineal pain lead to spasm of urethral sphincter;

4) After giving birth, the abdominal wall becomes loose and the abdominal pressure drops, which makes urination weak;

5) The parturient is not used to lying in bed to urinate, and it is easy to cause urinary retention if not urinating for a long time;

6) Mental factors.

Studies have shown that the use of electrical stimulation at 2h or 8h postpartum to intervene in the urination function of the parturient has significantly shortened the time for the first urination of the parturient and the incidence of postpartum urinary retention is also significantly reduced.
