When a woman give birth, we always tend to get the mother baby presents and all but ever wondered may be they deserve a present, It's not easy to have a living being in a womb for 9 months with mood swings, high cravings, constant pain, complications, lack of sleep or being constantly tired.

On top of that postpartum is just as hectic, we need to help and encourage motherhood, may be with some good treats, gifts, taking care of the baby so the new mother can rest especially when it comes first time mums.

For the New Mum these are some Postpartum Care:

1. Vaginal Pain: After childbirth, vaginal tears may occur, causing discomfort. Over-the-counter pain relief, sitting on a padded ring, or using ice packs can help. Women should be aware of signs of infection and seek medical attention if pain persists.

2.Vaginal Bleeding/Discharge: Postpartum bleeding changes over time; excessive bleeding may indicate complications and requires medical evaluation, including for conditions like endometritis.

3. Breastfeeding: Encouragement and support for breastfeeding are essential, as it benefits both mother and baby. Proper latch, swallow, and positioning are crucial, with regular evaluation during postnatal visits.

4. Nutrition and Exercise: A balanced diet and gradual return to physical activity are recommended. Breastfeeding mothers should consume extra calories, and strenuous activities should be avoided initially.

5. Breast Engorgement: Frequent breastfeeding and warm or cold compresses can help relieve breast discomfort. Non-breastfeeding women can use cold packs and pain relievers.

6. Bladder and Bowel Function: Women should be encouraged to void regularly and may require mild laxatives if experiencing constipation.

7. Sexual Relations: Decreased libido and healing time for perineal tears should be discussed. Contraception counseling should accompany discussions about sexual activity to prevent unintended pregnancies.

8. Contraception: Postpartum contraception options, including hormonal and non-hormonal methods, should be discussed during pregnancy. Timing and suitability depend on individual circumstances and breastfeeding status.

9. Education: Essential information on newborn care, emotional support for pregnancy loss, and referral to support services should be provided.

Bringing a new life could be scary with lots of responsibilities, taking care of a baby can bring full of anxiety, stress and depression too
 
Giving a new mom a baby present without a congratulatory gift may come across as impersonal or lacking in thoughtfulness,so infact It is a nice gesture to include a congratulatory gift along with the baby present to show your support and celebrate the new mom's journey into motherhood. It adds a personal touch and lets her know that you are thinking of her as well

But it's so rare in our community to have the gifting gesture.

Thats being impartial and gender segregative what about the father.......you know what it takes to be aresiposible father?

It's so rare,just because of low income among many people in our community,thus why it is difficult for them to play part in giving congratulatory gifts to both Mom and new born baby,so people they opt to do what matters the most,and that is to offer a baby present for the new born baby

A commitment after so much thought and willingness to be a father, I feel like when a woman gives birth should be the one to get the gift, The father actions can be determine with the spouses, it's somehow hard to see that when a woman just gave birth if the father was really responsible so many cases are there like fathers denying to take wives on clinics so travel at that time of pregnancy because to avoid certain responsibilities... It's an opinion but I understand your point as well. but to what span?

In my opinion, I believe that while understanding is important, offering acts of service can be incredibly valuable and supportive
