Taking Care of Mom

  1. Baby Blues: Mood Swings or More Serious?

    For many women, the "baby blues" pass quickly. For others, the feelings of sadness don't ease and may become worse.

  2. Caring for the Mother: Physically and Emotionally

    Nap when your baby naps. Take warm, shallow baths several times a day if you had stitches after delivery. Wear a supportive bra and use warm compresses to help with milk letdown.

  3. Contraception/Birth Control

    You have a lot of options when it comes to birth control. Some methods don't require a doctor's visit, but others, like oral contraceptives, are available only by prescription.

  4. More Than Just the Baby Blues

    As a new mom, your body is going through lots of changes—not just physically, but emotionally, too. If you can’t seem to shake the “baby blues,” there may be a bigger issue at hand than lack of sleep. Discover the warning signs that signal help is needed.

  5. The New Mother - Taking Care of Yourself After Birth

    Tubal ligation is surgical procedure you may choose if you are an adult woman and you do not want to get pregnant in the future. You may have heard tubal ligation referred to as "getting your tubes tied."
