There are a of changes your body will go through over the next 6 weeks. These occur whether you had a cesarean section or vaginal delivery. Uterus — It takes about 6 weeks for the uterus to return to your pre-pregnancy size. The uterus should remain firm and will gradually get lower in your abdomen.
To maintain firmness, massage the fundus and keep the bladder emptied.
Cramping is normal, especially with breastfeeding. Lochia — Vaginal flow lochia will gradually decrease and become lighter in color over approximately 4 weeks. First it will be dark red with clots, then pink, then white in color. Menses — Return of ovulation varies, but ovulation may before your first normal period, so use birth control if sexually active. Your physician will discuss birth control options with you at your 6- week visit. Urination — Occasional leakage of urine is common; this usually resolves. Do Kegel exercises to help strengthen the pelvic muscles after delivery. Bowel Movements — It may take several days to normal bowel movements.
Constipation is common after pregnancy and the use of certain medications may exacerbate constipation. Drink plenty of water, eat fiber-rich foods, and take a stool softener if needed to avoid constipation. Hemorrhoids are common after delivery and take several weeks to resolve. Circulation — Mild anemia is common after delivery. Continue to take prenatal vitamins and use iron if instructed by your physician.
Swelling, especially in the feet and legs, is to be expected. If you develop redness or pain in either leg or asymmetric swelling, notify your physician so that you can be evaluated for a blood clot in the vein. Mood — Feelings of depression are normal after delivery.
Notify your physician if these feelings last longer than several days or if you are unable to cope. Breasts — Breast changes are common after delivery.
Wear a supportive bra. Watch for engorgement fullness and tenderness even if not breastfeeding. Apply ice packs and take pain medication to relieve the pain of engorgement. If pain, redness, fever or severe tenderness develop, contact your physician so you can be evaluated for mastitis infection of the breast. If you have difficulty breastfeeding, please contact the lactation consultants or our office for assistance.

I am so happy I did. My baby girl was born at I always get compliments on how awesome my scar looks! I really had the BEST birth experience, ever! The highest level of care I have ever experienced! She is so dedicated and caring! She is very knowledgeable, her staff is amazing, and I truly feel like she values my opinions in regards to my body. So happy to have found her!! Also, the office staff is eager to help and calls you back so quickly.
They are so nice, and don't make you feel like you are bothering them as some places do! They genuinely care!! Very professional! Excellent customer service! Always on top of returning calls and s! I highly recommend them!!! Love their service! I loved all of the staff but I have to say Dr Rodgers and Dr Kotsko are my favorite and they both made me feel comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone. Mary Burns is wonderful! I felt very relaxed with the doctor, she is very knowledgeable and friendly.
The staff was also very nice, especially Julie she made me feel comfortable on my 2nd visit. During my pregnancy, I saw every provider and each one of them were great. I love this office, everyone is very nice, they are always good to me, take care of me very well, worry about my problems. I've been a patient since May with my first pregnancy and have had nothing but positive experiences.
I have seen a of the doctors as well as the medical assistants and they have all been friendly, helpful and made me feel comfortable through this crazy process. Natalie Rodgers is a fantastic doctor. She has never made me feel like a question was too mundane and if I'm seeing her my wait time is 5 minutes or less.
She delivered my son and made me feel so comfortable and at ease. Everyone who was in the room when he was born couldn't stop talking about how excellent she was.
I had a macronewborn 9lb5oz and yet a seamless delivery of which I can only imagine was because of her expertise. If she's on call when you deliver, consider yourself super lucky! We all hate going. Let alone talking about it. I'll just say that Dr. Lisbet Hanson at this practice is a wonderful doctor. She's very friendly, knowledgeable and patient.
She'll take plenty of time with you and is a good listener. You never feel rushed, and you can tell she genuinely enjoys helping her patients. I am super pleased with this group of medical professionals. So far I've met with Dr. Kotsko and Dr. Each one took their time with me. So many times at the doctors office I've felt rushed and no one valued my time. I haven't been to an office that runs on time like this one does. They are a very accommodating group as far as scheduling goes. They've even found me a dermatologist and scheduled the appointment for me.
There's not a lot more to say other than It's just a great group of doctors and nurses.Virginia Beach girl needed for occasional massage
