So what does happen after birth?

There are a lot of changes and strange things to expect after we give birth....and more than just the fact that we have a new family member.

If you're like most of us, you learn about pregnancy, and then it's time to focus on preparing for birth......but what about AFTER? We are often kept in the dark about all the things we'll face after giving birth. Our bodies go through BIG changes. Recovery and healing can be tricky and take time, and we sometimes get conflicting advice about the best way to do things. Find out how you can prepare for this transition now and what to expect when the time comes.

You will get some very detailed information about the postpartum recovery time like:

  • What care will we get in the hospital and how long will we be there?
  • Why we bleed and what is a normal amount and how to handle it.
  • Why it hurts to pee and poo at first and what to do!
  • How to take care of our tender parts.
  • How the uterus is recovering and how to help.
  • Warning signs of recovery setbacks and what to watch for.
  • How to set yourself up now for better recovery success.
  • And more.......

At Ascension Seton our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, providers, associates, and communities. As cases of COVID-19 increase across the U.S., Ascension continues to aggressively respond to this evolving situation to protect our associates and those who we are privileged to serve. We regularly treat patients with infectious diseases and our clinical teams are highly trained in infection prevention protocols. Ascension is closely monitoring COVID‐19 developments and working daily in partnership with our local and state health departments and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

After much discernment regarding the best course of action to limit possible exposure to this virus and in an abundance of caution, we have decided it is in the best interest of our associates and the community to temporarily postpone or reschedule to an online platform all upcoming hospital maternity tours and classes, until further notice. We will share relevant updates with you by email. In the meantime, please visit to watch a video tour of our maternity unit.
