The postpartum period refers to the six to eight weeks following childbirth. During this time, mothers will adjust and heal. They will also undergo emotional and physical changes as they cope with the challenges of caring for their newly born baby.

As an institution providing Personal Care in Georgia, Mothers Helping Hands Home Care recommends these postpartum care to help mothers rebuild their strength after delivery:

  • Rest
    Mothers need a lot of rest and sleep to regain their energy from all the tiredness and fatigue brought by childbirth. Also, newborn babies wake up every two to three hours and need to be fed, changed, and comforted. A tip from us is to sleep when your baby sleeps.
  • Eat nutritious foods
    After delivery, mothers need to eat a healthy diet to help them recover. You also need the energy to take care of the baby. Be sure to have plenty of vegetables and fruits, as well as the right amount of proteins and carbohydrates. Also, take a lot of fluids such as water and milk especially if you are breastfeeding.
  • Let others help you
    Accept help from family and friends during this period. You need time to heal and recover that’s why having other people help you around the house is very important. You can also get support through Assisted Living Support, wherein the needed care and attention are given to mothers like you and your baby.
