6-8 weeks is considered the early postpartum period. Remember though, it took 9 months for your body to change and can take at least that long to recover (I consider the postpartum period to be one year). Be kind to yourself while your body heals.
I had a chance to sit down and chat with the wonderful Dr. Erin Kasparek, Naturopathic Doctor here in Ottawa and get the scoop on our poop.
The number one question I get asked is “How do I know if I should see a pelvic floor physiotherapist”. The short answer is that all pelvic floor dysfunction should be evaluated and if you are not sure, having an evaluation and the education that accompanies can be invaluable.
