Abstract:An academic at the University of Salford claims it takes a year to fully recover after having a baby - as opposed to the official view of six weeks. Dr Julie Wray observed practice on two maternity wards in Salford and Trafford for her PhD research. She also interviewed women interviewed at various intervals after they had given birth. Many of the women were dissatisfied with post-natal services and found the six week check-up was disappointing because it didn't confirm whether their bodies had reverted to 'normal'.
