The importance of taking care of new moms

News

As mother’s day approaches and as news of the royal baby gains popularity, doctors at the Cleveland Clinic are encouraging new moms to take care of themselves.

A report from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists found when a new baby comes home, mothers often forget to prioritize their own health.

The doctors say postpartum health, mental and physical, should be monitored, and anything out of the ordinary should be reported to their doctors.

The report also suggested that new moms seek help with the baby in the postpartum period, and not try to shoulder all responsibilities themselves.
