En la fisiología humana, el puerperio es el período que inmediatamente sigue al parto y que se extiende el tiempo necesario (usualmente 6-8 semanas) o 40 días para que el cuerpo materno —incluyendo las hormonas y el aparato reproductor femenino— vuelvan a las condiciones pregestacionales, aminorando las características adquiridas durante el embarazo. En el puerperio también se incluye el período de las primeras 2 horas después del parto, que recibe el nombre de posparto inmediato. - See link
