Postpartum Care

A woman’s body experiences significant changes during pregnancy. This is then followed by even more change as the burden associated with caring for a new child is added to the physical load of her everyday life. Nursing and unilateral carrying are simple examples of subtle repetitive activities that can sometimes have long lasting impact on how a mother feels.

Being evaluated after birthing a baby and being monitored while the relaxin hormone is still elevated in the body is one of the most prudent health decisions a mother can make.
