Toilets have now become like the only place where you get to break away from the commotion of life and can sit on the throne and do whatever you feel like- without any interruption.

Postpartum means the time after childbirth. Most women get the “baby blues,” or feel sad or empty, within a few days of giving birth. For many women, the baby blues go away in 3 to 5 days. If your baby blues don’t go away or you feel sad, hopeless, or empty for longer than 2 weeks, you may have postpartum depression.

Pregnancy can affect your skin in a variety of ways and the majority of them go away after birth.
