Postpartum Care

by Veronica Gillispie, MD, FACOG

The postpartum period begins soon after the delivery of the baby and usually lasts six to eight weeks, ending when the mother’s body has nearly returned to its pre-pregnant state. This period is very important for the short- and long-term health and well-being of both the mother and her baby. The postpartum care visit may be utilized to counsel mothers on infant care and family planning, encourage breastfeeding, identify and treat medical conditions common to the postpartum period, and manage preexisting or emerging chronic conditions.
