Answer: Nutrition speeds up the healing processes and improves your energy levels after the delivery. Continue eating a well -balance diet. 1. Easily digestible foods: New mothers accumulate excess gas after giving birth, so you should be careful not to eat foods that cause gas and constipation. Avoid carbonated drinks and fried foods, which produce gas. Eat fiber rich foods to stay away from constipation. Warm soups can be easily digested, and are nutritious as well. Cottage cheese, broth, and yogurt are also good. Yogurt can restore the bacterial balance after the cesarean section (3). Fatty acids from primrose and flaxseed oil give relief from constipation. Avoid foods that are hard to digest. 2. Proteins: Proteins aid in the growth of new cell tissues and help in the healing process. Protein rich foods facilitate tissue repair and maintain muscle power after the surgery. You can eat fish, eggs, chicken, dairy foods, meat, peas, dried beans, and nuts.

Question: can anyone tell me what is meant by postpartum depression
Answer: Postpartum depression ,also called postnatal depression, is a type of clinical depression which can affect both sexes after childbirth. Symptoms may include sadness, low energy, changes in sleeping and eating patterns, reduced desire for sex, crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability. The birth of a baby can trigger a jumble of powerful emotions, from excitement and joy to fear and anxiety. But it can also result in something you might not expect — depression. Many new moms experience the "postpartum " after childbirth, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping.  But some new moms experience a more severe, long-lasting form of depression known as postpartum depression. Rarely, an extreme mood disorder called postpartum psychosis also may develop after childbirth. Postpartum depression isn't a character flaw or a weakness. Sometimes it's simply a complication of giving birth. If you have postpartum depression, prompt treatment can help you manage your symptoms — and enjoy your baby.
