There is so much happening in the first few weeks after birth. These weeks will be filled with changes and challenges. It is important to know what to expect and how to care for yourself the first weeks to come. Everyone’s birth experience is unique and it can take an average of about 4-6 weeks before you start to feel like your old self again. Pay attention to your body and how it communicates with you. Rest as much as you can, drink plenty of water and make time for some well deserved self care and attention. Not only will it make you feel more confident, healthy and comfortable, it also helps you in your transition into life with a newborn.
