Treatment of constipation after childbirth
constipation after childbirth occur slightly less often than during pregnancy.Many mothers have difficulty with the first stool after birth, and those that give birth the natural way, and with the help of cesarean section.
after natural childbirth constipation commonly occur for 2 reasons.
1. Psychological (afraid to go to the bathroom for fear of a possible discrepancy in the crotch seams - if there are gaps or episiotomy was performed).And some women simply forget about it ... I remember that for a long time did not go to the toilet after 3-4 days, when it occurs constipation.
2. Poor nutrition. in the hospital, of course, well-fed women in childbirth, but only the mothers, for the most part, are experiencing a lack of appetite, especially those who have touched postpartum depression.
Yet, when there is constipation after childbirth, what to do?If a woman were sutured to the perineum or cervix, and during his stay in the hospital she never went to the toilet on their own, before removing the stitches (this is done before discharge) young mother certainly put an enema.But at home all will have to depend only on her.Do not limit yourself to the usual food of the numerous myths about nutrition breast-feeding women.A gradual transition to a normal diet, watching the reaction of the child.Of course, there are foods that should not be used expectant mothers, but there are not many, and their restrictions certainly constipation after childbirth will not cause.It should also be noted that stool problems may be the primary cause for discrepancies crotch seams if they were superimposed.To avoid this, doctors recommend the next 3-4 weeks after birth do not push.
If you have constipation after childbirth, how to get rid of them quickly and easily?All depends on the cause.You must eat foods that are natural laxatives.And this is the famous dried fruit, oatmeal, sunflower seed oil, kiwi and so on. D. Every body is different.One woman can help a glass of water in the morning, and the other is nothing "does not take."Conventional laxatives to eat, of course, is not necessary in order for young mothers who are breastfeeding.As drug penetrates into breast milk, and from there to the body of the child.The result, and so it is clear what will be - abdominal pain and diarrhea in infants.Perhaps the only safe laxative - is "Duphalac".The dose is adjusted individually.
But not only with the help of laxatives, but also some "mechanical" means you can call the chair.The most common of these are glycerol suppositories and enemas.Just keep in mind that candles can be used only if there is anal fissures and hemorrhoids.After using candles, for about 3-5 minutes, there is a strong urge to use the toilet.Glycerine candles used even for constipation in infants.Enema should be used only as a last resort, and certainly no stranger to it.Frequent stool bowel, thus not naturally caused to be harmful to the intestinal microflora, which is simply washed with water.
Preventing constipation virtually any type is proper nutrition, diet.You can not use the "reinforcement" products.For example, rice, strong tea and coffee, a variety of crackers, chips, and so on. D. They are very encouraged dairy products, yogurt with a short shelf life ( "live"), vegetables and fruits are rich in fiber.
good intestinal work is important not only for the woman but for her child.Since constipation nursing mother almost 100% backfire lock her baby.Mothers who do not care about the health of their children, have to learn what postpartum constipation treatment are effective and what prevention bowel disorders.
