Post-delivery Herbal Medicine.?
herbal medicine for new mothers ???
Hello Muhamad, Thank you for the question.
The puerperium is a period that begins when pregnant women give birth to the placenta which continues until a few weeks later, generally up to 6 weeks or 40 days. This period is a recovery period for mothers to return to the condition before pregnancy, starting from the vagina, uterus, cervix, abdominal wall, to the breast. During this time, the mother will experience bleeding such as during menstruation. Normally, the body already has its own response after giving birth. The mother's uterus will contract after childbirth to help prevent postpartum hemorrhage and help the delivery of puerperal blood.
Basically there are no specific drinks including herbs that can be recommended by doctors because not all herbs have been supported by adequate medical research. However, if the mother who has just given birth wants to consume herbal medicine, please take the herbal medicine to help the body's recovery, be sure to consume products that have been registered with BPOM. Do not hesitate to consult with an obstetrician if your wife has doubts.
Make sure during the postpartum period your wife gets enough family support. Try to encourage your wife to actively move if the body has recovered. Don't forget to pay attention to your wife's emotional level because after giving birth baby blues can occur. Immediately advise your wife to consult a doctor if during childbirth experience a fever, severe headache, pain in the calf, difficulty breathing, chest pain, difficult to urinate, or experiencing constant sadness.
I hope this helps.
