It’s difficult, what your body is going through. You carry a child in your womb for nine months and then one day, it’s gone and you cradle in your arms a brand new baby. It is astonishing and is definitely worthy of being considered a miracle. However, giving birth is a struggle, and that struggle doesn’t end once the baby is delivered. Your body has gone through a lot of strain and needs care. Here are several tips that you can follow to help you in your healing process.
Wear Loose Clothing
You just gave birth to a child. A living, breathing person was pushed out of you. Your body is going to be sore, and you need to take care of it. One way to take care of it is to not punish your body by wearing tight clothes, and constricting the blood flow your body really needs to properly heal. Comfy jogging pants and loose t-shirts and jackets can help your body feel more at home, and put it on the road to recovery!
Don’t Overexert Yourself
Your body just went through a lot of strain, and now that your new baby has been born, you’re going to be busy all the time. While this business is going to be necessary and very important, since it’s about taking care of your baby after all, you need to know your limits. You are a mom, and a supermom at that, but you will still need help. Be sure to get as much rest as you can, and be sure to not be afraid of asking for help - from your partner, from your family, and even from friends you can trust.
Listen To Your Doctor
This is the most important thing that you need to remember. You absolutely have to listen to your doctor. You have to take whatever vitamins and medication the doctor says you should take, you have to do what the doctor tells you to do, and meet with your doctor whenever you have to meet with them. It wouldn’t hurt you as well to be able to get as much out of your hospital visits as you can. Be sure to get all the tests you need to get.
And as we’ve said before, don’t forget to check in with your doctor whenever you need it!
