How Are You Feeling?

As you adjust to life after childbirth, you may experience a range of physical and emotional changes. Every woman’s postpartum experience is unique, and we’re here to listen to your concerns and understand your individual needs. Please share any symptoms you may be experiencing or any questions you may have about postpartum care. Our caring approach ensures that you feel heard, valued, and supported during this special time.

Postpartum Symptoms:

The postpartum period, commonly known as the “postnatal” period, is a critical time for maternal recovery and bonding with your newborn. It’s essential to be aware of the common symptoms you may experience during this phase, including:

  • Vaginal Discharge (Lochia): Postpartum bleeding is normal and typically lasts for a few weeks.
  • Uterine Contractions: These are mild cramps that help the uterus return to its pre-pregnancy size.
  • Breast Changes: Your breasts may become engorged, tender, or experience leaking milk.
  • Perineal Soreness: If you had a vaginal delivery, you may experience soreness in the perineal area.
  • Fatigue: Adjusting to new sleep patterns and the demands of caring for a newborn can be tiring.
  • Mood Swings: Hormonal changes can lead to emotional ups and downs, commonly known as the “baby blues.”


  • Stress and Anxiety: The challenges of motherhood may lead to feelings of stress and anxiety.
  • Urinary and Bowel Changes: You may experience changes in urination and bowel movements after childbirth.
  • Healing from Caesarean Section: If you had a C-section, the healing process will require attention and care.

Diagnoses and Treatments:

Dr Hammond is dedicated to providing personalised postpartum care that addresses your specific needs. We will conduct a thorough assessment to identify any concerns you may have and offer the appropriate treatments to support your recovery.

Common diagnoses and treatments during the postpartum period include:


Postpartum Check-Up:

We’ll schedule regular follow-up visits to monitor your healing, assess your emotional well-being, and address any questions you may have.

If you choose to breastfeed, we provide expert lactation support to ensure successful breastfeeding and address any breastfeeding challenges.


Management of Perineal Discomfort:

For mothers recovering from vaginal delivery, we offer care to alleviate perineal discomfort and promote healing.


Hormonal Support:

Hormonal changes during the postpartum period can impact your emotions. We offer compassionate support and guidance to address mood swings and postpartum anxiety.

Proper nutrition is crucial during the postpartum period. We’ll provide advice on maintaining a healthy diet to support your recovery and overall well-being.

If you experience any postpartum pain, we’ll implement a pain management plan to ensure your comfort.
