Recover Well and Recover Quicker to make the 4th Trimester Easier.
In the first few weeks postpartum, your body adapts from a state of pregnancy and experiences many changes: it is a big transition, emotionally and physically.
The changes include:
- Uterine involution (when the uterus returns to its normal non-pregnancy state)
- Hormones normalisation
- Emotional adjustments
- 6kg to 8kg of puerperium weight loss, causing postural changes and the sudden shift of centre of gravity
- Mammary changes
The common postpartum symptoms include:
- Recovery from Labour:
- Pelvic Ligament and joint strain and pain
- Epidural and other pain medication after effects such as headache or backache.
- Pain from trigger points: tension in the abdominals, hip flexors, lower back, gluteal muscles and hip area.
- Lack of abdominal muscle tone and integrity
