What to expect when you’re no longer expecting.

Congratulations — you’re finished with pregnancy and childbirth! Those are two major feats, which means your body has some adjusting to do as you return to your old self. Learn more about what these physical changes are like, including what to expect after a C-section. Check out our nutrition & fitness page for advice on how to eat right and exercise after having a baby. Your doctor will want to see you about six weeks after giving birth for a new mom checkup, but certain concerns may need a doctor’s attention sooner, including postpartum depression. Find out more in our when to call the doctor page.
