They shouldn't stop taking iron and folic acid supplements which they had during the pregnancy because blood loss during delivery and postpartum can lead to anemia. Also its necessary to replenish iron stores
The postpartum period is commonly defined as the six weeks after childbirth. This is a very important time for both mother and the newborn baby as both adjust to each other and their expanded family. In the first few hours and days after childbirth, mother can experience many changes, both physically and emotionally.
