Cultivating self-care during pregnancy and the postpartum days is vital to thrive as a new mother. Your motherhood journey begins, emotionally, when you find out there is a baby growing inside you.
Your life shifts and is changed.
It's challenging and beautiful!
A few ways to do this is:
Whether you are pregnant or already have your baby, give yourself time to adjust at he thought of motherhood and the transition to motherhood. Acknowledge that the feelings of overwhelm, discouragement, loneliness, inadequacy, are all normal. Spare yourself the feelings of guilt and give yourself grace. You will get through it!
Give yourself time for a mind dump. Set aside time daily, weekly, monthly . . . to journal, dance, play music, go for a walk by yourself, or whatever you need to do to clear your mind of chatter, the to do list, etc. and breathe in life and peace.
Entering into motherhood, it is very easy to lose ourselves and our passions. It has become my passion to support you on your pregnancy, birth, and motherhood journey and to help you cultivate your passion when the fog of newborn land has lifted.
In the Postpartum Journey e-courses, I share a story about a woman named Inanna. Her soul journey parallels your soul journey of birth and motherhood. While sharing her story, in the videos, I guide you to process your own story and reawaken the depth of your passions.
Take a few hours or days to cultivate your spirit through meditation, a church gathering, go on a nature walk, gather with trusted fiends. Listen deeply.
During pregnancy you can begin networking with moms groups in person and online and begin preparing for your postpartum transition.
You can begin planning now to experience postpartum bliss and minimize the risk of postpartum depression.
