Your Pregnancy Journey: Fourth Trimester

Family First Medical Group

Family First Medical Group and Women’s Healthcare of Illinois share offices, so you get the best care, all under one roof.

The fourth trimester is the 12-week period immediately after you have had your baby. Every mother and their newborn baby will go through it. It is a time of great physical and emotional change as your baby adjusts to being outside the womb, and you adjust to your new life as a mama.
