5. Postpartum Bleeding (And What Is Normal)

Understanding what’s normal and not normal for postpartum vaginal bleeding is hard to determine.

It is normal to have vaginal bleeding after vaginal delivery and cesarean section because this is the way your body gets rid of the extra blood and tissue in your uterus that helps your baby to grow. This is known as lochia.

You’ll have a heavy flow initially after childbirth and for the next few days, but the bleeding should begin to slow down. If the bleeding continues to be of a heavy flow well into 1-2 weeks postpartum, it’s recommended you call your doctor. This article may help you understand this topic of better.

Postpartum Workout

6. Postpartum Workout

Postpartum workouts are crucial to postpartum recovery.

Why are they so important?

Because exercise helps restore your muscle strength and firm up your body.

Exercise also boosts your energy and your mood and promotes weight loss. Of course, the added benefit of restoring your abdominal muscles after they have been stretched out for 9 months during pregnancy is a big reason why postpartum workouts should be included in your everyday lifestyle.

Postpartum Nutrition Mom and Baby

7. Postpartum Nutrition


Out of all the topics covered in this article, this has to be the most important. Nutrition is key to all things postpartum.

Your baby feeds off your nutrition, your body heals faster with adequate nutrition and your #momlife will ultimately be better with improved nutrition.

Take the time to incorporate plenty of whole grains, fruits, vegetables and proteins into your diet.

With the added demands on the mother’s body and those necessary for the development and well-being of your baby, eating healthy during postpartum provides an abundant amount of short and long-term benefits. Learn more about postpartum nutrition here. 

8. Postpartum Weight Loss


Postpartum weight loss is no easy task. But understanding the process is just as important as actually tackling the journey itself.

Did you know that most women lost about 13 lbs during childbirth?

That’s definitely not even close to half the amount of weight most women gain during pregnancy.

So there is a lot more weight to be lost after pregnancy. How to do it and how to do it safely is what most women want to know.

There are hundreds of programs available to assist with this, but what’s most important for you to know is that your nutrition is more important than weight loss.

Sacrificing nutrient rich foods from your diet can be harmful to your breastfed baby. So choose your foods wisely and attack weight loss with a different approach than you may think.

9. Postpartum Hair Loss


Postpartum hair loss occurs in 40-50% of women nationwide. The condition is also referred to as postpartum alopecia.

Postpartum hair loss occurs after childbirth because of the sudden change of hormones in your body, particularly the change between progesterone and estrogen.

This can actually occur and become more noticeable several months after childbirth. Learn how you can treat postpartum hair loss and decrease the amount of shedding by reading this article.

10. Postpartum Style


So many choices, and such a wide variety of fashionable postpartum clothes.

Even though you may be most comfortable in an oversized sweatshirt and yoga pants, a girl just wants to look good sometimes! Right?!

Maybe you are going on a date with your hubby, or a quick coffee catch up with your bestie, or maybe a simple outing to church on a Sunday morning. Whatever you are doing, looking and feeling good is important because you deserve to feel and look good.

Amazon has an entire line of postpartum styles, but my favorite place to start is Belly Bandit for all things postpartum!

Without a Belly Bandit Belly Wrap, I don’t know if I would have ever have had such great results for my postpartum recovery. To learn more about how postpartum belly wraps work and the benefit behind wearing one, read this article.
