When you give birth to your child, you’ll realize that the size of your family isn’t the only thing that changes. Throughout pregnancy, your body changes to accommodate the new life growing inside you, and after your baby is born you can expect to experience a number of symptoms related to postpartum conditions.
Common symptoms associated with postpartum conditions may include:
- Continued vaginal or abdominal pain and soreness
- Continued heavy bleeding
- Headaches, nausea, and/or vomiting
- Urinary problems – pain or dark urine
- Feelings of depression
