What is the 4th trimester?
The 4th trimester is a term that describes 0-3 months after the birth of your baby. Most people are not aware that the 4th trimester is just as important as the previous 3 and so most enter this time without proper preparation . During the 4th trimester you need just as much, if not more care as you did when you were pregnant, remember your body is healing and still changing in significant ways.
