The period after the baby's birth is known as the postpartum period. Women require care during the postpartum period to overcome the stress of the delivery and to help them manage a newborn. In addition, postpartum care includes managing a cesarian section wound or vaginal tears of normal delivery and care for the new mother's leaking milk, sore breasts, hair loss, weakness, and urination problems. A healthy, well-balanced diet and routine check-ups are a part of postpartum care.
