Fewer than half of women attend the recommended doctor visits after childbirth.
Experts recommend a six-week postpartum appointment with an OB/GYN to talk about healing and any future health risks.
In a new study, researchers found only 50 percent of women with complicated pregnancies and 44 percent with uncomplicated pregnancies saw their OB.
Only about half saw their primary care doctors within a year of childbirth, which is also recommended.
