Postpartum exercises, stretches, and/or diet
I did a lot of things differently this pregnancy that I did not do in the past like drinking red raspberry tea, using raw vitamins, did spinning babies when my son was breeched, and did some other stretches and exercies as well that kept me feeling well throughout the pregnancy. This delivery also went great and I am feeling great at one week pp. Now that I have delivered what are some things that are good to keep including in my diet that are good for pp? Maybe something that helps with the bleeding or just recooperation in general. Should I continue to drink the red raspberry tea? I know about a balanced diet and we eat well but is there something specific that is good to help moms recover from delivery? With my last I developed a terrible kidney infection about 6 weeks pp. I've heard cranberry juice is good for that. If so how much should I be drinking or is there something else that helps prevent kidney infection. I found cranberry tea in the store but I do knot know anything about it.
Also I am looking for exercies or stretches that are good for pp. I am not necessarily looking to lose weight yet and I know i have to wait a while before starting to exerciese a ton. I have heard it is good to conitnue kegals and to do pelvic tilts. Is there anything else I can do other than the typical walking and such?
