We will learn the following about the most important information about reproduction:

Things that no one tells you about childbearing

There are many things that you will not know about childbirth until after your experience of giving birth on your own, as follows:

1. You cannot control stool

Defecation during labor seems gross and embarrassing and no new mother wants this to happen, but stools may occur during childbirth.
The muscles you use to push your baby out are the same muscles you use to defecate, so if you are pushing correctly, it is likely that a little stool will pass.

2. The payment does not end once the child is taken out

You may think your work is over once your baby is born, but there are already more contractions and stresses you need to do, as you still have to deliver the placenta.

The doctor may ask you to push again after cutting the umbilical cord, and then he will help you to facilitate the expulsion of the placenta, which may happen immediately or take a few minutes.

3. Pain is unpredictable

Regardless of the type of labor your mother or sister has gone through, you or your doctor cannot predict the duration or difficulty of your first labor.

Some new mothers may assume that their birth will last for a long time and unbearable pain, but they may have an easy birth and relatively little pain, while others expect a relatively quick and easy birth as their mothers did before and then discover that their delivery time was long.

4. Labor is not one-stage

Labor occurs in three stages, which are as follows:

  1. The first stage begins with contractions that continue until the cervix becomes thinner and dilated to about 10 centimeters.
  2. The second stage is known as the active phase in which you start pressing down to expel your baby from the placenta, which is the organ that provides your baby with food and oxygen during pregnancy.
  3. The third stage begins when your baby's scalp appears and then soon after that your baby is born.

5. Pain cannot be completely prevented

Whether you are using hypnosis, breathing techniques, laughing gases, or an epidural, childbirth will be painful, but that does not mean that some steps cannot be taken to ease the discomfort and make it more tolerable.

Things no one tells you that happens after you have a baby

There are many things that may happen after the childbearing process, here are the most prominent of them:

1. Excessive hair loss

It is possible for your hair to be thick and strong during pregnancy thanks to the increase in the hormone estrogen in your body, but after childbirth, levels of the estrogen hormone may decrease, resulting in a higher percentage of your hair loss.

2. Swollen feet

Swollen feet are a common side effect of pregnancy, but you may notice after childbirth that although the swelling decreases, the size of your feet may remain larger than they were before pregnancy, this can be temporary for some women, but for others, it can be permanent.

3. Sweating during the night

Sweating is one of the things that you will have to get used to in the first few weeks after giving birth, and waking up can make you sweat so much that you might think you have the flu.

Sweating can occur throughout the night and may require a change of sheets.

Medical matters you should know about childbearing

Here are some medical matters that you and your family should know well about childbearing:

  • The likelihood of postpartum depression

About 15 to 20% of women may suffer from postpartum depression.

While it is important for a new mother to know the signs of postpartum depression, it is even more important for her family to be aware of the exact signs to watch.

  • The necessity of not bathing the children after birth

Baby bathing right after birth may be a common occurrence, but newborn nurses wait four to six hours before doing so due to the white layer of fat on the baby's skin that helps boost immunity.
