How to loosen the intestine after childbirth
After delivery, it is normal for intestinal transit to be a little slower than normal, causing constipation and some anxiety in the woman who does not want to force herself to evacuate in fear of the stitches opening. For the recent mother to be more calm it is good to know that:
