Postpartum is part of pregnancy. It is the six to eight weeks after having a newborn baby. For a new mom these weeks can be quite a very stressful, challenging and difficult for new moms. Read on for great postpartum stress survival suggestions to make this precious new mother/child transitional interval less stressful, less traumatic, easier and more enjoyable for you and your baby.
Few post delivery stress reducing survival tips that made the tip of my second pregnancy more enjoyable.
1. Sleep when your baby sleeps: As a new mom postpartum be prepared to be exhausted. Take every chance to sleep whenever your baby sleeps.
2. Stock options your freezer with pre-cooked dishes: New moms get hungry at odd hours and it is not unusual to be also tired to cook.
3. Schedule chiropractic adjustments: Chiropractic care can also help after childbirth. In the eight weeks following labor and delivery, the ligaments that loosened during pregnancy begin to tighten up again. Ideally, joint problems brought on during pregnancy from improper lifting or reaching should be treated before the ligaments return to their pre-pregnancy state-to prevent muscle tension, headaches, rib discomfort, and shoulder problems.
4. Don’t be afraid to cry: Pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum results in changing levels of hormones. After childbirth we have a rapid decrease in hormones. These hormone adjustments can be emotionally challenging for the mum. You may cry for no apparent reason so let it out and know this is all portion of a normal pregnancy postpartum.
Having a new baby is an excellent time in a woman’s lifestyle. Knowing the above plan ahead and visualize ways to support yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually before hand before you are all consumed along with your new baby.
