Post natal Care

THE ADVENTURE
BEGINS NOW

Now begins a positive chapter in your life – the start of an exciting new adventure. The postnatal period begins after birthing and ends when the mother's body has nearly returned to its pre-pregnant state. This period usually lasts six to eight weeks. The postnatal period involves the mother progressing through many changes, both emotionally and physically, while learning how to deal with all the changes and adjustments required with becoming a new mother. The postnatal period also involves the parents learning how to care for their newborn and how to function as a changed family unit. A mother needs to take good care of herself to rebuild her strength. You will need plenty of rest, good nutrition, and help during the first few weeks. Your nine months of waiting have ended. You have just given birth to your baby and now you are full of the wonder and excitement of caring for your newborn! No doubt - you are also full of questions. To be well prepared in advance, "Welcome Motherhood" - an initiative by CheQKmate would have helped you and your partner cope up with the sudden changes that happens after child birth, breast feeding issues and care of your newborn.
