Woman, Do These Six Things Immediately After Giving Birth

The amount of excitement you'll experience when your new baby is placed in your arms is unimaginable. However, there are a few things you should be aware of as soon as your child is born.


You will be glad you read this post because it will increase your understanding on the subject. Do you want to learn something new today? Read all the way to the end.

Here are 6 Things You Should Know As Soon As You Give Birth to a Baby, Women

Taking Care of the Umbilical Cord

The umbilical cord is the connection that connects a mother and her kid during pregnancy, and it acts as the child's lifeline. The umbilical chord is as essential as your child's life, which is why it's always recommended that you properly dispose of it after it falls off.


I'd like you to be aware that when the umbilical chord is severed after childbirth, a stump remains, and you should handle it with extreme caution. Please don't be alarmed if you see a yellowish fluid or perhaps traces of blood. This is quite natural.

Also, you must wait for the remaining stump to fall off on its own rather than cutting it off. After that, it will naturally create the navel.

The First Breath of the Baby

Your kid didn't have to worry about breathing when he or she was within your womb. Because the baby has exited your womb, you might expect a change in his or her breathing pattern.

Because the baby's lungs will be full with air, he or she will breathe hard and irregularly. All you have to do is keep a tight eye on your child; but, if the breathing appears to be very noisy, you should seek medical advice.

3. The APGAR Score

The APGAR test is the first test performed on an infant to determine whether he or she is normal. APGAR stands for Appearance, Pulse, Grimace, Activity, and Respiration test.

This test will determine whether or not a child is normal, so pay close attention. Your child is considered normal if the score is 7 or higher. It's almost low when it's between 4 and 6. However, anything less than 3 will be considered dangerously low.


If the test results are less than 3, your child will require immediate medical intervention.

4. Ophthalmology

Take special care of your newborn baby's eyes, as they are extremely fragile.

Wipe the eyes of your newborn baby with a damp towel on a daily basis to achieve this.

Vaccination against BCG and Hepatitis B

Vaccination is crucial for the health of your newborn kid as a new mother. Make sure you keep all of your doctor's visits and that your child is immunized on time.

BCG is a highly efficient tuberculosis vaccine. Hepatitis B vaccination is also essential due to the disease's virulent nature.

6. Bathing a newborn.

To avoid allergies or skin issues, do not bathe your newborn baby with excessively fragrant soaps. When bathing your infant, use only mild soap and lukewarm water.

These are the things you should know as a new mother, but I'd want to encourage everyone to read my next piece, in which you'll learn more about parenthood.
