In order to accommodate small uterine distinguished guests, the role of the hormone, will become gentle and soft, with enough blood to form a hollow ball. “Rich” after childbirth, the uterus into a room, not so easy to be restored to the original state, need to take care of my mother.
2 months, “recovery” period
For women, the uterus is very strong, it can produce new life with super endurance; the uterus is also very fragile, it needs 4~6 weeks to gradually recover, 6~8 weeks to complete healing.
The recovery of the uterus consists of three aspects: the restoration of the uterus, the restoration of the cervix and the restoration of the endometrium. Some of which may not be restored at once, and are detrimental to the health of the mother.
Continuous contraction of uterus
Hand on the abdomen, can touch the ball very hard, this is the body of the uterus, the fetus after delivery of the placenta at its highest level in the same high and navel. Uterine body recovery depends mainly on the contraction of uterine contraction will need continuous extrusion production when the fetus and placenta after childbirth; uterus will shrink further, will continue to squeeze out a blood clot, uterine volume will gradually shrink, spherical touch is gradually reduced to the first and fall into the small pelvis cavity.
Cervical “closed door” self-cultivation
Just at the end of the birth, the cervix becomes very soft, and the wall of the cervix is thin and folds like crepe paper due to congestion and edema. 7~10 days later, the cervix will close and begin “internal” repair. Until about 4 weeks postpartum, the cervix will gradually return to normal.
After delivery, the placenta and fetal membranes are completely separated from the wall of the uterus. At this time, a new layer of endometrium is regenerated from the underlying layer of the endometrium. Around 10 days postpartum, in addition to the placenta attachment surface, the other part of the uterus cavity will be covered by the new endometrium.
Tips: postpartum light exercise
After childbirth, in addition to the uterus to be restored, the pelvic tissue should also be restored, otherwise, the lower body will have a sense of fall, easy to lumbar acid, but also prone to urinary incontinence problems. The pelvic tissue recovery, must avoid the lower part of the body, especially the lower abdomen with a knife, like heavy lifting and squatting movements, in half a year after production should try to avoid, but some postpartum exercise, such as abdominal breathing, as well as in the first week lying on the hard bed leg, hip, knee or chest horizontal movement, can make the uterus and abdominal contraction and recovery.
Recovery of the uterus is also “lazy””
It takes a considerable period of time for the uterus to recover completely, which requires mother to take good care of it. Once taken care of, it is possible that the contractions are bad, or very large, very soft, slow to return to the original appearance, persistent bleeding of the brown, and so on.
If the uterus is not well restored, there is a clot or residual placenta in the uterus, and the uterus will be filled with blood clots. This can cause “constriction” of uterine smooth muscle to stop contraction, resulting in poor uterine contraction, and may cause the risk of massive bleeding.
This is the most prominent manifestation of incomplete postpartum uterus, which is most likely to occur in the puerperium, and mothers should pay special attention to it.
Suddenly a “small pot” some mothers after the birth of the baby, can not eliminate the belly, this is often due to a baby’s big, pregnant belly skin will hold to relaxation, so that can not be reduced. In fact, most mothers still contract normal contractions.
However, if in the process of self-examination, 2 weeks after the birth of the small abdomen can still get a group of things, it is likely to be poor uterine contractions or fibroids caused by, of course, depends on the bleeding.
The interference of care “sudi”
In fact, the uterus is wronged. It is not intended to “lazy”, it is not serious, encounter some difficult “rivals”, some “unable to resist sustain the blows”.
1, placenta or fetal membranes remain in the uterus cavity. If the placenta or fetal membranes are incomplete, there will be persistent bleeding and sometimes massive bleeding.
2, uterine decidua abscission incomplete. Decidua usually falls about one week after delivery, and if it falls incomplete, it may lead to late postpartum hemorrhage.
3, combined endometritis or pelvic inflammation. If improper care after delivery, causing the uterus or pelvic infection, will also be long-term bleeding.
4, excessive uterine retroversion, lochia not easy to discharge.
5 、 combined with intramural myoma of uterus. Uterine fibroids affect the contraction of the uterus, the amount of postpartum song will increase.
6, if the postpartum micturition is unfavorable, the bladder is too full, also can cause the uterus can not descend to the pelvic cavity.
7, if the mother is older, the health condition is not ideal, the childbirth time many or the multi tire pregnancy, also often will affect the postpartum womb restoration.
Fast recovery n – Worldwide
Most mothers recover from their babies. However, if you want to recover quickly and well, you still need moms to do some homework”!
Coup 1: timely urination
Postpartum, the doctor will often ask mother to urinate as soon as possible, usually 4 hours after the birth of urine. Because during childbirth, bladder pressure, mucous membrane congestion, muscle tension reduction, perineal wound pain. Not accustomed to bed, posture, urination and other reasons, are prone to urinary retention, so that the bladder swell, impede uterine contraction and cause postpartum hemorrhage or cystitis.
Coup two: “don’t stay in the puerperium”
Pay attention to the bedridden elderly after childbirth, afraid of cold. However, after 6~8 hours, the mother in the elimination of fatigue after it is best not to “stay in bed”, second days to get out of bed, which is beneficial to the physiological function and physical recovery, help the uterus restoration and lochia discharge.
Coup three: Breastfeeding stimulation
Stimulating the nipple can also help the uterus contract. Therefore, it may be in the postpartum baby to eat breast milk as soon as possible, as long as the baby a suck, the uterus will shrink, baby frequent sucking, frequent generation of this reflex stimulation, will make the uterus recovery faster. Mothers who do not breastfeed can also massage breasts or compress breasts to stimulate the nipple.
Coup four: don’t be dirty mother
It’s good for mother to take a bath after childbirth. If it is normal delivery, bath can make the vulva wound and surrounding bacteria not easy to stay, but also promote the vulva wound blood circulation, is conducive to wound healing. If it is cesarean section, and take the skin transverse incision, subcutaneous suture method, then bath water will never enter the wound. Just apply a piece of gauze on the surface of the wound so that the water can not touch the wound directly. Of course, after all, the wound is very delicate, so after bathing, the wound should be renewed dressing, do not use wet towels on the wound back to wipe.
Coup five: Massage
In the early postpartum period, regular massage of the floor of the uterus to stimulate and contract the muscles of the uterus is also a way of stimulating recovery.
