Abstract

Caring for women in the postnatal period can be challenging. One of the most important aspects is ensuring disease control as there is a risk of flare in the postpartum period. Other aspects of care also need to be addressed with the mother in mind such as breastfeeding or with the neonate in mind such as vaccinations or complications of the maternal condition affecting the neonate. This article highlights aspects of care that need to be addressed in the postpartum period such as flare rates, maternal wellbeing, thromboembolism, vaccinations, contraception and breast feeding.
