Pregnancy is a long 9 months, but it doesn’t end there! Postpartum care and recovery really does encompass a lot of things and most are a shock and unexpected. In my case anyway.
Before I had my baby, I did my best to be as prepared as I possibly could be, but there were a lot of things I just wasn’t prepared for.
I had never had a baby before, so I just really didn’t know how or what to prepare for when I had never experienced it in the past.
Throughout postpartum care and recovery there were 17 main things that I did not expect.
I was surprised at how much I bled, how it was still terribly uncomfortable to sleep. The breastfeeding cramps were unbearable along with crazy postpartum hormones and feelings.
It is completely normal to feel and experience these things, I just wish I would have been more prepared for them all.
Along with finding ways to ease my discomfort, dealing with a brand-new baby and the struggle to breastfeed I did manage to find effective ways to help with the many aspects of new motherhood.
Through my experiences, I hope my tips and tricks can offer you some help throughout your postpartum journey.
