Getting ready to leave the house to face the outside world after being stuck at home for weeks and all you want is to look presentable. It is easy to forget the amount of things you are limited to when you have a new born. Like no perfume. And if you’re breastfeeding you need to wear a top that’s easily accessible and that means me scrambling through my wardrobe forming a mound on the floor as as I indecisively go through everything that I own which unsuitable to wear, then you have to remember breast pads and nipple cream because god damn its been months but you’re still suffering from clothes chafing your bust area. And as for makeup, if you do be sure none of it touches the babys skin, so no kisses and snuggles just in case and wearing lipstick, that wont be happening again as I realised fast it just kept smudging across my face and transferring over to my clothes; a scatter brains mourning the sense of feeling ones’ self again.
Mom life is a tough life but of course I don’t regret it as I know it won’t be like this forever and all children are blessings but everyday life has got just that more challenging and fallen in the hands of my kids and out of my control.
Postnatal care means taking one day at a time and pre planning absolutely everything. Keep organised, try and do yoga, meditate and remember daily deep slow breaths.
It’s hard to Take time out but at this vulnerable stage in motherhood it is vital that you do and don’t lose yourself completely!
