Check out these helpful postpartum care tips from Megan Roosevelt, the amazing mom and blogger behind www.healthygrocerygirl!
This may sound like an obvious thing to do to be healthy, but as a new parent you have VERY little time in the day. It’s easy to not eat well and live off of snacks and takeout. We do grab food to go at least twice a week, such as chipotle, but we try and eat at home as much as possible! I keep easy, simple nourishing snacks in the house and meal prep my favorite Healthy Grocery Girl recipes like soups that last well and are so satisfying.
Exercise is therapy for me. Being in fresh air, breaking a sweat and moving my body help to relieve stress, anxiety and also helps tone my body! I am slowly adding yoga back into my routine as well as pelvic floor exercises.
After having a baby your core is very weak and all of your internal organs are shifting back into place. Your uterus is contracting back to its normal size and your tummy is very soft. You’re not supposed to engage your core while it’s healing so that you don’t cause more damage or permanently separated abdominal muscles. Your abdominal muscles naturally separate during pregnancy to make room for baby. Any damage to them or improper healing can cause permanent separation called diastasis recti. Wearing a Belly Wrap or support helps to act as a splint keeping the abdominal wall tighter.
I know what you’re thinking… sleep when you have newborn? Haha! The quantity and quality of my sleep has gone down since having a baby, I still make sleep a priority. If I can get a “good” nights rest I am a better, more patient mom.
I struggle with postpartum anxiety. Talking about my feelings, frustrations and concerns is one of the best ways I deal with anxiety. My husband is my greatest support system. However, I’ve also found that connecting with moms who are in the same season of life has been so helpful. It really does take a village to raise a child and also to care for and help keep a mama sane!
