Puerperium can be a time of excitement, joy and stress. Proper management of normal puerperium is essential for ensuring a smooth transition into motherhood.
Puerperal pyrexia, also known as puerperal fever is a rise of temperature (fever) reaching 100.4° F or more within the first 10 days after delivery.
Many women experience problems after delivery of the baby like painful perineum, back pain, incontinence, etc; which needs to be managed effectively.
The Placenta is said to be retained when placenta or its membranes remain in the uterus and not expelled out even 30 minutes after the birth of the baby.
