Health Tip: Healing After Baby is Born

Ease back into your routine
(HealthDay News) -- Recovering after having a baby takes time, patience and extra care.
The American Academy of Family Physicians offers suggestions for new mothers:
Be sure to drink eight to 10 glasses of water each day. Be prepared for vaginal discharge. Don't lift anything heavy. Avoid using stairs until your doctor has given you the OK. Don't drive until you can comfortably wear a seat belt, make quick movements and your doctor tells you it's OK. Call your doctor if you have redness or swelling at the incision.
