Birth: Mother Nature’s toughest workout with a 9-month training period. Now, the postpartum after party begins. Healing and recovery take time, and dealing with postpartum can be challenging. The transition to motherhood is a journey, not a sprint. Embrace the long, and sometimes arduous roller coaster ride that is postpartum with these gentle tips to help you navigate this period more smoothly. Keep in mind that every individual's experience is unique, so it's essential to find what works best for you. 

  1. Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Eating nutritious meals, stay hydrated, and incorporate gentle exercises, as advised by your healthcare provider. amma360's Postpartum Protein+ offers a quick, healthy, and tasty complete meal source with 20 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber and 5 grams of fat to help you meet the enhanced nutrient needs as a new mom. 
  2. Seek (Professional) Help: If you're struggling with your mental health, don't hesitate to seek professional support. Postpartum depression is common, and therapy or counseling can be beneficial.
  3. Communicate Your Needs: Communicate openly with your partner about your needs, feelings, and concerns. A strong support system is crucial during this time.
  4. Build a Mom Community: Reach out to new mom friends, family, or support groups, or joining mom groups or online communities can provide a sense of camaraderie. Sharing your feelings and experiences with those who relate can provide emotional support and comfort that you're not alone in what you're feeling or experiencing. 
  5. Set Realistic Expectations: Understand that the postpartum period is a time of adjustment. Be realistic about what you can accomplish and give yourself grace as you adapt to your new role.
  6. Ask for and Accept Help: Don't hesitate to ask for and accept help from others. Whether it's assistance with household chores or caring for the baby, allowing others to help can lighten your load.
  7. Be Kind with Yourself: You grew a baby inside your body, and now you're growing that baby out in the world. You and your body are amazing, and capable. You're a real life super hero, amma. Remember that each time you pass a mirror, or are feeling down. Love yourself. 
  8. Celebrate Small Wins: Acknowledge and celebrate small achievements. Whether it's successfully breastfeeding, getting through a challenging day, or simply taking a moment for yourself, recognize your efforts.
  9. Prioritize Self-Care: Prioritize self-care. Take breaks when you can, rest when the baby sleeps, and indulge in activities that bring you joy.
  10. Rest + Sleep: Adequate rest is crucial. Sleep when the baby sleeps, and try to establish a routine that allows you to get sufficient rest.

Remember, it's okay to ask for help, and taking care of your mental and physical well-being is essential for both you and your baby. If you have concerns or symptoms that persist, consult with your healthcare provider for personalized guidance.
