Follow up Visit: It is vital that postpartum women get their follow up checks on time. The OB/Gyn Dr can check on the lacerations and see how they are healing as well as add any needed sutures to areas that may have loosened or come out. Your best bet at healing correctly will be under your Dr's care.
