As the bladder tension decreases during pregnancy, the labour process is prolonged, the bottom of the maternal bladder is pressed by the fetal head for too long, forming edema and blocking the urethra. After delivery, bladder tension temporarily disappears, insensitive to filling, and the wound in the perineum makes mothers afraid to urinate, so urinary retention easily occurs. Our postpartum massage sessions can stimulate local blood circulation, increase metabolism, accelerate the absorption and excretion of pathological products, which is conducive to promoting the decompensation of the bladder and urethra, thus causing urination and reducing the occurrence of urinary retention.
The main cause of postpartum bleeding is a weak contraction of the uterus. The main prevention and control measure of weak uterine contraction is to massage the uterus and stop bleeding by compression.
