what's your postpartum plan?
Grin and bear it
"Bounce back" ASAP
Only cry in the shower
Mindlessly scroll social media (and end up feeling more lonely)
Act like you have superpowers > legitimate needs
Avoid all the feels⠀
Let me stop you right there.
While caring for yourself postpartum may seem frivolous now that you have a tiny human who is depending on your for evvvveeerrythiing, the truth is self-care in motherhood is essential to the mind, body and soul...
The truth is
your postpartum experience doesn't have to be gross, shameful, isolating or lonely.
It can be beautiful and empowering.
instead of looking back, we deeply honored pregnancy & early postpartum and it's incredible raw beauty?
...we prepared for our own birth & postpartum experiences as much as (or more than) the baby's?
...we expected and demanded time for ourselves, to engage in ESSENTIAL healing and restful mama self-care?
...we allowed motherhood to be something beautiful & fulfilling
instead of allowing it to make us feel inadequate?
My background is in Family Life Education...
and that means I'm not just going to teach you how to get the baby out and how to care for them but more importantly how to care for yourself!
Because infant mental health IS maternal mental health:
If mom is not okay, neither is baby. ⠀
Moms who take care of themselves have more to give back to their families.
Families that ensure everyone's needs are being met consistently and adequately are healthier and happier overall.
In some cultures, postpartum is a time of relaxation, healing, stillness. People surround the new mother to keep her warm, fed, hydrated and in good spirits. The housework gets done, the older children are cared for, special food is made with love while Mama gets to know the new little soul she worked so hard to grow and bring earthside.
In the U.S., we sadly do not have an "American" way of swooping in to care for new moms.
That's where I come in...
