After giving birth, you will experience many physical and emotional changes. Although most changes will be normal, it is important to recognize signs or symptoms that require medical attention.
You should contact your physician immediately if you have any symptoms that cause concern, including:
Note: If you are experiencing chest pain or having trouble breathing, call 911. If you are having a medical emergency, go to the nearest emergency department.
It is normal to experience the “baby blues” after giving birth. Learn more about postpartum depression or call your doctor for more information.
