User avatar Dear Pokey,

How was labor? Was it difficult? Any events? Low blood pressure during labor at any time, blood loss?

Have you tried to breast feed at all? Is anything otherwise normal in terms of your health besides the weight loss?

Thank you very much for using our website and i hope that this information helped and waiting for your reply.

Yasser Mokhtar, M.D.
