A first-time mother identified as Milena Sanchez has listed the nine things pregnant women should expect after pregnancy. The first-time mother shared her post-partum experience on social media.

Sanchez went into a lengthy detail of what she went through, explaining that no one prepares an expecting mother for post partum.
She shared details such as a private part discharge containing blood that can last up to six weeks, having swollen private part and also her worry that she was incapable of being a mother because she didn’t cry the moment she laid eyes on her baby.
The new mother also revealed that post-partum recovery also had its effect on her marriage. She stated that she had post natal depression.
