Postnatal Self Care - Get Your Body Back To Normal(图1)

After giving birth to a child, most mothers want to return to their pre-pregnancy state as soon as possible.

So, what should be paid attention to in postpartum recovery? What should I do? The most important thing is to master the timing of physical recovery.

First of all, first assist the recovery of the uterus

After delivery, it takes about 4 weeks for the uterus to regain its pre-pregnancy size. At this time, our pituitary gland begins to secrete a large amount of prolactin, the breasts begin to enlarge, and the mammary glands begin to secrete milk. Adequate breastfeeding is not only beneficial to the health of the breasts, it can also help the uterus to contract and promote the discharge of lochia as soon as possible. Start breastfeeding as soon as possible. This is the easiest and most convenient way to help the uterus contract.

In addition, in order to shorten the recovery period, electrical stimulation can be used for repair.

Secondly, lose belly, wait for 42 days to recover in time.

The rectus abdominis is the outermost muscle of the abdomen. This muscle is arranged longitudinally in the middle of the front of the abdomen. If there is very little fat on the surface, it can be seen that six or eight are scattered and distributed. As the pregnancy increases, the enlargement of the uterus will cause the abdominal wall to expand and extend, and the rectus abdominis on both sides will separate from the midline of the abdomen, which is the position of the white line, which will cause the rectus abdominis to separate.

According to clinical data, more than 70% of mothers will suffer from rectus abdominis separation in the later stages of pregnancy. If the rectus abdominis separation is not repaired in time, it will bring a lot of sequelae to the mother in the future. For example, intestinal hernia (the small intestine protrudes from the abdominal wall to the outside of the body), body deformation (the abdomen can't be thinned anyway), organ displacement (nausea, vomiting, vomiting, indigestion and other digestive system symptoms), can be 42 days postpartum, Use abdominal breathing, electrical stimulation, manual massage, etc. to restore the damaged rectus abdominis as soon as possible.

Finally, the vagina relaxes and the pelvic floor muscles are trained to make you tighter back.

Whether it is a C-section or a normal delivery, vaginal slack will inevitably occur. This is actually caused by the secretion of hormones in our body during the third trimester and the continuous compression of the pelvic floor due to the enlargement of the fetus throughout the pregnancy. In addition, due to the passage of the fetal head, the vagina of the parturient during vaginal delivery will greatly expand, and the wrinkles will disappear temporarily, and it may also be accompanied by the bulging of the vaginal wall. If symptoms such as urine leakage and bulging occur after childbirth, you need to insist on pelvic floor muscle training.
