postpartum recovery is an important period for the mother, both emotionally and physically.
the idea that mothers must “do it all”, while recovering from birth, is a myth.
mothers can do most of it, with help.
postpartum recovery services may include
emotional & spiritual support of mother
sibling and partner care
nurturing of family
physical support following birth (including c-section care)
household assistance (laundry, menu planning, errand running) so parents can rest
