Changes in breast:
After giving birth, you will start feeling milk formation in your breast. That will make your breasts more soggy and heavy. You will start feeling sore, swollen, flushed and engorged with breast milk, just after a day or two of giving birth. That’s the food for your child and the ultimate nutrition. The swollen sign will stay for three to four days and after that, your breasts will began to sag. This is mainly due to the stretched skin.
Bleeding after delivery:
