Months 6 and 7
During pregnancy, your body suppressed your immune system to protect the baby. Had it not, your immune system could have identified the growing person inside you as a threat and attacked them. This suppression can last until 6-7 months postpartum, sometimes longer. This is a time to be taking care of your immune system, building it up to be strong for the months and years to come!
