What to Expect at a Postpartum Checkup – And Why the Visit Matters
By. Dr. Diana Ramos
In the weeks after birth, many moms struggle with anxiety, pain, fatigue, and other concerns.
Checkups can give you and your ob-gyn a full picture of your physical, mental, and emotional health. Your ob-gyn should do a physical exam, including a pelvic exam, to make sure you’re healing well from the birth. They should also ask questions to find out if you’re having any of the problems new moms often struggle with.
Staying healthy involves ongoing ob-gyn visits, even after the postpartum period. Before your last postpartum visit, your ob-gyn should help make sure you’re set up to continue your care with routine visits.
Don’t skip your postpartum checkup. You may feel you have reasons for skipping. Maybe you feel fine and don’t need another thing on your list. But it’s still important to seek care.
“I am so excited to be a part of this team and able to administer these life-changing thera-pies for women’s wellness. I am extremely passionate about providing care to the whole woman, whether it is in their routine everyday care, vaginal rejuvenation therapies, or aesthetic treatments. I believe every woman is beautiful in their way, and I am happy to be a part of their journey,” says Aledyandra Crespo-Nieves, MD.
Our Vaginal Rejuvenation therapies are life changing. V-Tone helps strengthen weak pelvic floor muscle fibers that are weakened or overstretched during pregnancy and childbirth. It also treats urinary incontinence and can help prevent the need for bladder mesh surgery. Forma V is designed to improve internal tightness, circulation, and sensation.
Our Muscle Toning can help strengthen your abdominal muscles that were weakened by pregnancy and childbirth. Diastasis recti is very common during and following pregnancy. One 30-minute tone session is the equivalent of doing 288,000 crunches and has approximately 1.5-centimeter closure after eight treatments.
Scarring, stretchmarks, and other skin conditions can arise during preg-nancy and childbirth as well. We have Lumecca (IPL Laser Treatment) that will take away dis-colorations of the skin. Morpheus 8 will resur-face the skin, minimizing the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
