Is it normal to have cramps after giving birth?

Is it normal to have some cramps after giving birth?
Submitted by American Baby Team

In the first few days after delivery, it's common to get cramps that can range from mild to contraction-like, while your uterus shrinks back to pre-pregnancy size (a process that can take up to six months). These cramps can be exacerbated by breastfeeding, which stimulates the release of oxytocin, the hormone that causes contractions. Ibuprofen, massage, or a heating pad can help ease the pain. --Allison Winn Scotch
