Imagine: You’ve given birth in a hospital and you’re ready to take your tiny new person home. Probably you’ve a bag of departing gifts that includes the hospital magazine, diapers, formula, coupons for more diapers and more formula, and a disposable pair of granny panties big enough to draw a full-sized bullseye on. I’ve always thought, how is it possible that no one thinks to hand a new mom a manual of sorts? At the very least there ought to be better communication between the new mother and her healthcare provider, especially at this start of all hormonal hell breaking loose. First off, there’s a lot going on during this period, which I refer to as the “Fourth Trimester” of pregnancy. Postpartum is the least talked about time during the pregnancy cycle—chances are you may not be aware that it is part of that cycle.
