On a physical level, postpartum is characterised by an involuntary and regression process of the body areas and organs that have undergone changes, with the exception of the mammary gland, which at this time is of greater importance for feeding the baby. In addition to physiological changes, there are also changes in mothers on a psychological level, in the family structure and in their social role. 

A period in which so many changes appear can translate into a complex or difficult adaptation, so it is important that the care provided by health professionals is carried out from a biopsychosocial and holistic approach and it is recommended that they be coordinated by a midwife.
