Being a new mum is a hectic time for anyone. Your body needs time to recover. Keep your asthma in control for you and your new baby.

If your asthma symptoms have been better than usual during your pregnancy, you may find your asthma starts to return to the way it was before your pregnancy. You may need some extra advice about this from your doctor or asthma nurse. It may take a while until symptoms are stable again.

If you are breast feeding your baby it is safe to take your usual asthma inhalers and medicines as normal.
