The first few months after birth are essential for establishing family wellbeing. For mothers, the first 12 weeks postpartum, also known as the fourth trimester, should be seen as a continuum of pregnancy and an important period of recovery and family adjustment. Typically a time of great joy, the early postpartum period is also a time of significant challenge as new mothers adapt to hormonal and physical changes, recover from delivery, endure sleep deprivation and adapt to shifting family responsibilities.
