Getting Emotional Wellness Right for New Mothers

 

Do you fantasize about booking a room in a 5 star hotel, not for the service or splendor, but just so you can put a Do Not Disturb sign on the door and catch up on your sleep ?

Join the line sister ! There are millions of women who would love to do the same thing. 

It’s ok to feel overwhelmed by all the changes in your body and having a new baby entirely dependent on you.

 

These Mometernity Myth busters will help you realize that you are just human and with a little help you too can ace the new mommy journey:

Was it a C Section ? 

You have given as much blood, sweat and tears in having your baby as everyone else. You may have needed a C section for health reasons or by choice but not calling it a proper birth is like saying Neeraj Chopra should not get the gold medal if he used someone else’s javelin. You have done the hard work for 9 months and have now won the gold medal. 

Are you on Top of the World ? 

Your clothes smell of drool, breast milk and pee. You’ve not had a girls night out since forever and your perfectly decorated house looks like the set of Jumanji. You may feel like you are at the bottom of the ocean, but believe me you’ll begin to fly soon. Get all the help that you can and learn to say no to things that you cannot do.

Feeling Guilty ? 

Don’t fall into the guilt traps that are waiting to pull you down like snakes on the Snakes & Ladders game. If you are not able to produce enough milk for your baby, it’s ok to supplement with formula it is important to keep your baby full 

And wanting to get your life back to the way it was before doesn’t make you a cruel person. Whether it is resuming work or taking a break with friends you will get a fresh perspective and feel happier as you do your motherly duties. 

Begin with You

Love and take care of yourself so that you can do the same for your baby. You cannot pass on what you don’t have.so if you are not in a good place, that’s where your baby will be too. So make sure that you do the things that make you happy be it food, friends or clothes.
