How Soon After Giving Birth Can You Get Pregnant & Other Post-Pregnancy FAQs Many mothers find pregnancy to be the most exciting journey of their lives and look forward to reliving the experience all over again.

The tongue is separated by cutting the skin below it. In most cases, this can be carried out without anesthetic, as there are hardly any nerve endings under the tongue, and feeding can go back to normal within 24 hours.
