There are a few things I know for certain when a new baby is born;
- The new mom is exhausted because birth is always a physically, emotionally and mentally draining ordeal.
- The new mom has zero time for herself. Like a shower and a solitary trip to the toilet are luxuries.
- Visitors will flock in droves with the usual, cutesy baby gifts in hand to cuddle, coo and baste in that glorious new baby smell.
- Very few people, if any, focus on mothering the new mother. And this is so crucial.
I started curating beautiful postpartum care packages for new moms because I know how easy it is to overlook self-care, especially in those early months.
Let’s face it, mommin’ is an intense gig. Sometimes you have no choice but to run on fumes, however, without regular self-care time, EVERYTHING gets exponentially harder.
New moms, especially the first-time ones, are not thinking about this. They’re thinking about their babies. I know for me, it was difficult to take my focus away from my newborn (for even a second) to give myself some care and attention. However, it was 100% necessary. Not just for my own mental health but physically too. There is a lot of healing that has to happen in those early weeks/months.
But ya know what? New moms need reminding that their needs matter. They also need encouragement and inspiration. And, it has to be made easy for them, otherwise, it’s not going to happen.
