(HealthDay News) -- If you've just given birth, it's important to relax, enjoy your new baby and take care of yourself.
The womenshealth.gov website offers these suggestions for brand-new moms:
Don't try to lose a lot of weight too quickly. Focus on eating healthy, nutritious foods. When your doctor says it's ok, start a regular exercise routine. Be on the lookout for signs of "baby blues," medically called postpartum depression. Be patient as you transition to life with your new baby. Some women develop a post-birth thyroid problem, which could include symptoms such as lack of energy and difficulty sleeping.
