The Postpartum Period

Your pregnancy doesn't really end with delivery.  This postpartum period is very special time for you to bond with your new baby, but it's not always so easy.

After the baby and the placenta are out, your body and your mind go through even more changes. These changes can wreak havoc as your milk supply comes in, your reproductive system tries to return to normal and the fluid that has been accumulating over the past 9 months is finding its way out. At the same time, the lack of sleep and the stress of caring for a newborn, can make it seem overwhelming.

At Delaware Valley OBGYN, we are there to see you through the postpartum days, whether they the most special of your life, the most stressful or your life or somewhere in between.
