Postpartum and Breathing
As a new mother, it is normal to let go of and dismiss your own needs to take care of your baby. Sleepless nights, constant breastfeeding, changing, puts your basic needs like brushing your teeth on hold. Women often ignore the little aches and pains that they are experiencing. Whatever good care you take of your body during pregnancy, you have to practice even more caution after you have given birth. Your postpartum health is equally important and ignoring small discomforts so you could take care of your little one might prove to be dangerous.
Women often experience a lot of postpartum problems; some are more serious than others. Each of the problems has distinct symptoms, and some have two or more traits in common.
The scary part is - most of the problems are linked to each other, and also to what your life routine was before and during pregnancy.
As no two pregnancies are ever alike, so are the postpartum changes happening in your bodies. Women rarely experience the same symptoms with the same intensity throughout the postpartum period. For example, you may have mild discomfort from hemorrhoids or constipation, another mother from your Lamaze or Bradley class may experience heartburn or even shortness of breath after delivery.

The best time to work on postpartum health is during your pregnancy. Why?
