After Pains

Spanish Text

Some women have cramping, called "after birth pains", in the lower abdomen. This is most common with your second or later baby, or when you are breastfeeding. These "pains" are a sign that your uterus is returning to normal. Usually the pains stop a few days after the birth of your baby.

Talk to your doctor or nurse if "after pains" bother you a lot.
