What is postpartum care?

Postpartum care focuses on supporting a woman’s needs in the timeframe after childbirth. Most people understand the challenges that pregnancy brings, but don’t always understand how pregnancy and childbirth affect a woman for many months after labor and delivery. 

Various physical changes are just the beginning. In addition to the physical issues caused by bringing a child into the world, women also face a number of other adjustments. Emotional health, family and social support, and the changing dynamics of the family all deserve attention during this time. 

Just as no two pregnancies are ever exactly alike, postpartum care is also highly personalized. Carrie works with new mothers to ensure they have the guidance, care, and support needed as they move through the postpartum period. 

What services fall under the umbrella of postpartum care?

Many different services are included with postpartum care. Some examples include:

  • Supporting healing after vaginal trauma
  • Caring for cesarean wounds
  • Managing constipation
  • Addressing unusual discharge
  • Treating incontinence
  • Treating hemorrhoids
  • Managing breast problems or breastfeeding challenges
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Managing mood changes 

Postpartum care also includes supporting the entire family as everyone adjusts to a new structure. Nutritional guidance is also a strong area of focus, as your body needs nourishment to heal. Boosting nutrition is helpful to women who choose to breastfeed and those who want to improve their sleep. 

When should I reach out for postpartum care support?

All women should come in for postpartum care, even if their pregnancy and childbirth experience was relatively easy. These visits are a great way to connect with Carrie for the routine care needed after pregnancy and to get guidance and support to ease the transition into motherhood.
