hi

hoping you can help with a quick question, i gave birth to my beautiful wee boy on wednesday & lost a bit of blood, i was induced & put on the drip before giving birth & given fluids in a drip afterwards, i was also on a high dosage epidurale as they thought they were going to have to perform a c-section i also had an apeaseotimy (i know i can spell  ^idiot^ ^idiot^) . i have now notice one of my feet are quite swollen ( not both just the one? ) is this normal & what should i be doing to help it?

Hi

your body is having to make a lot of adjustments following your delivery, and your blood volume now has to work its way back to your pre-pregnant state.

Keep your feet up, as much as you can, and see if that helps, if you have any other worries along with this speak to your midwife/GP

Take care x
