consitpation after birth Rss

is it normal to get constipated after having a baby? i had bub a week ago. i was going when i was win the hospital but since i left hospital i have had trouble should i be concerned about this?
Hi,

Thank you for your enquiry. Constipation can occur at any time. You need to make sure that you have plenty of fluids, particularly water, and a diet that contains plenty of fibre. Sometimes, following birth the muscles in that area can be a bit more lax, so try to do as many pelvic floor exercises as you get time for. If there was something that you used to help you with constipation before the birth, you can try this too.

Best wishes,
Alex.
