It may take a few days before your digestion gets back to normal.

After a vaginal delivery, some women are afraid to push and withhold their stools. This may lead to constipation.

Whatever happens, try to maintain a balanced and high fiber diet. If needed, syrup of figs or another laxative may be prescribed.

Before taking any medication, check with your midwife, doctor and/or pharmacist to make sure they are compatible with breastfeeding.
