Your new baby Is here - now what?
Being a mom is life changing and the best and most rewarding job you’ll ever have. Becoming a mom is indescribable and something you need to experience to understand!
The birth process
Did it all go according to your plan? Perhaps it did, perhaps not. Either way you are now a new mommy, well done! Whether it’s your first baby, second baby or even third or fourth, from here on out life as you know it, is going to change forever. Bringing your new baby home will be the best and at the same time the most exhausting, experience ever.
Each birthing story is unique, special and personal. don’t beat yourself up if it did not go exactly the way you planned. Most of parenting through life goes unplanned and you need to learn to adapt and change all the time. The most important thing to remember is, you are strong and you are your baby’s everything. If you want to share your story with everyone, then do so, be proud of what you have accomplished – no matter how it happened.
Let’s face it, giving birth is no walk in the park. Your body goes through major changes, you have an influx of hormones, a new little bundle of love that requires your attention 24/7 (well at least for the first few days) and not to mention all the emotions you have to deal with.
Remember to take it one day at a time. No one can love your baby like you can. Try sleep when your baby is sleeping, rather than trying to catch up on chores. Its ok to have an untidy house the first few weeks, we have all been there and we all understand! While remembering this, don’t be afraid to ask for help. It does not mean that you love your baby any less. When you feel like those hormones are getting the best of you, take some time out for yourself.
Remember: A Happy mommy = Happy baby = Happy home!
