The uterus is contracted, and there is a cleansing of blood and mucus. If there has been cut in the perineum, the doctor soon, and other wounds and lacerations heal too quickly. Changes may mean that some women get very tired after giving birth. Hormonal changes can affect women as they experience mood swings or even depression.
