Women need care and attention throughout pregnancy, as well as after their child is born. The post-natal period is the eight weeks after a baby is born. During this period, a lot is happening. Not only is the mother dealing with the care of a newborn, her body is changing as well. Post-natal care handles the health of the mother through this sometimes-difficult time when emotional and hormonal changes are occurring. Patients near Katy, TX can visit Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Medicine to address the issues they are experiencing following their pregnancy.
Self-care is important during the first few weeks of being a new mom. Even mothers who have had other children will find that the process they go through with each baby is different. Getting enough sleep is important, though sleep may be hard to come by with a newborn in the house. Women are advised to “sleep when the baby sleeps” and to maintain proper nutrition throughout this time, especially if they are breastfeeding. Women who feel down and depressed are urged to seek appropriate post-natal care to avoid the consequences that can arise from post-partum depression. Our team can assist in a caring, discreet manner. Following birth, our team can discuss birth control methods for mothers who want to wait before having another child.
