How you are doing? Please let me know in comment section below. I would love to know….
So, before i start my blog, i would like share my personal experience and my background. I am working and studying mother of 16 month old son. So my hands are full of responsibility. So i put everyone first before me and compromise with my health. Now, i feel tired, unhappy and unwell. I was facing all the possible health issue whether hair fall, skin issue and what not. I was just complaining all the time “I am feeling Tired” “Oh!!! i have pain in my body” “My skin look so dull” and so on………..
We know ladies, NO ONE like complains!!! Also, after a certain point when no one take it seriously your health as we do not take our health seriously first hand….
Therefore, I am requesting you ladies please look after your self…..
As Mom always says to me “you can share your heart pain not physical”
Taking supplements: During pregnancy we take all supplements like folic acid, calcium and others. After delivery we tend to stop those supplements. Why ladies!!! you have given birth and it take all the energy. So please take you supplements and double check with you doctors as you might breastfeeding. Also, when you stop breastfeeding please do not stop your supplements. Supplements would help in you hair, skin and nails. Of course!! in your energy.
Watch what you eat: Take proper nutrition. When you eat meal, do not take as you are eating calories means do not count your calories. Enjoy your meal. Also, watch you are eating. Eating junk food is not healthy at all. Do not feel that you delivered the baby now you do not to eat that much food. Take proper diet. Drink a lot water. Consult you nutritionist after pregnancy and plan your diet accordingly. Trust me ladies you need much more energy after you delivery. Take lot of fibres as you might have constipation. Take lots of dry fruits.
Start exercise: In our culture (Indian) people believe that after delivery take 45 days rest. They believe it is enough time to recover. Afterwards start exercise. If you have concern about it please double check with your doctor.Start exercise slowly. Walking is very good option as i am doing a lot of walking. Do not stress yourself to go back in shape. Yo will be, if you are consistent in your workout regime. Also these workout help you to built stamina. Do not forget to do pelvic floor exercise. You could take help of some app like Squeezy.
Postpartum Depression: Around 15% of women feel postpartum depression. If you feel low energy, moody, anxiety, sadness and empty. If you have feeling to harm your baby ,Then please consult to your doctor. Share your feelings. Keep yourself busy. Start doing some activity. Listen some music. Do whatever you feel make you happy. Do not feel having a postpartum depression is a taboo. Do not ignore it. During this your Midwife would help you a lot. Postpartum depression require medical treatment. So please speak to your doctor.
Stress: I know you feel stress after delivery. Body have changed completely. Breast engrossed. Belly is still out. you feel pain here and there. There is vaginal discharge up to four weeks. DO NOT stress yourself. It just a phase. it will be pass on. Enjoy your time with baby.
