Your body went through many changes to grow a baby and will continue to change in the postpartum period. It's common to experience physical changes to your breasts, vagina, perineum and abdomen during the postpartum stage. Most of these things will get better by six weeks, but for some it takes longer. It's important to take your time, get help if needed and give yourself grace as you adjust to your new post-baby body.7 February 2022
