Also called the womb. The uterus is the organ that houses and protects the fetus during pregnancy. The uterus grows and expands with your baby’s growth. Your doctor will measure this growth during prenatal visits. The uterus also helps the fetus leave the womb through contractions. It will take several weeks to months after delivery for your uterus to regain a normal shape and size following delivery.
