My SIL had a quick, natural hospital birth on Tuesday. She called me last night to see if edema was normal. She said her feet, ankles and legs were very swollen, said they were actually mushy. I told her I didn't think that was normal and to call her midwife. She tried to get through to her, but couldn't because she's out of town. Is this worrisome, should she try harder to get a hold of her mw?
