New Mom? Don’t Forget to Take Care of Yourself After Delivery!

Your body just pulled off one of the biggest miracles: it created a new life! After 9 months of waiting, your baby is finally in your arms. While we do understand that most of your focus and energy is currently being dedicated towards your little angel, it is important to take care of yourself as well. It doesn’t matter if your delivery was normal or you had a C-section. Your body went through a lot of trauma and needs proper attention and time to heal back.

Below are a few things that you need to be aware of and should be taking care of post-delivery:

  1. 1. Don’t skip meals

Don't skip meals

Your baby needs constant care, we get that! But this doesn’t mean that you will start skipping meals. Trust us, you are going to regret it sooner than you would have imagined. Lack of nutrition will just deprive your body of all the energy that you need to stay on top of the whole motherhood thing. One easy fix to this problem is to eat what your baby eats. Fill your freezer with quick and easy-to-make snacks that fill up your tummy and give your body the right nutrients to recover.

  1. 2. How to handle Baby Blues

Being a new-mon can be very confusing emotionally, all thanks to the changing hormones. Many women struggle with being sad during the initial weeks after delivery due to the hormonal changes. This is called baby blues and they pass away in their own time. Don’t be ashamed of your emotions. You can even confide in a friend or a family member. This will help you feel better. But if these feeling of sadness lasts for longer and you are not able to function because of them, then it can be a case of postpartum depression. You should talk to your doctor about it.

  1. 3. Don’t stop taking your prenatal vitamins

Many women think that once they have delivered their baby, there is no need for them to have their prenatal vitamins. But this is absolutely not true! Your body just went through a lot of stress and it needs it fair share of essential vitamins to bounce back. Especially if you are breastfeeding, your body needs a boost of vitamins to ensure that your baby’s diet does not lack any important components. You can even consult your doctor and talk about post delivery food supplements that your body’s needs.

  1. 4. Breastfeeding can be difficult, be patient!

Breastfeeding

In the beginning, breastfeeding might suck (pun intended)! It is absolutely normal to experience some soreness during the initial days as your baby might not be latching to the nipple properly. Give it sometime and you and your baby will together find a comfortable position. You can also try changing positions or consult your doctor before you develop painful cracks on your nipples.

  1. 5. Ask for help

Taking care of another life can be quite demanding and it can definitely take a toll on your well-being. Being a new-mom you are already under tremendous pressure to do everything right. This leads to a lot of anxiety and fear. On top of that, these feelings get amplified due to lack of sleep and rest. In such a scenario, asking for some help from your family or friends is a great idea. This will give you some relief from non-stop work. No matter how small your break is, it will help you rejuvenate and re-energize.

In addition to the above 5 pointers, you should also not be so hard upon yourself when it comes to loosing the baby weight. It will go away in its own time. You can eventually start doing some exercises to regain your core strength. But remember that there is no thumb rule to recovery after delivery. Take your time and cherish those special bonding moments with your newborn to the fullest.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
