All About Postpartum Mental Health

For many new parents, the emotions after having a baby can be tough to manage.

Mama, we know your whole world has just been (or is about to be) turned upside down! We’re talking about those rewarding days after postpartum — the most exciting yet challenging time in a new parent’s life. While the most precious gift of your life will have just arrived, it is natural that you will feel an absolute whirlwind of emotions — both good and bad. And as a result, you’re going to need some tried and tested tips from the other mamas along the way that have been through it. So, we’re sharing our best knowledge on how to prioritize new mom mental health, get the support you need, and one of the must-have postpartum essentials to keep with you along the way…

Pretty soon, your pre-birth routines are going to seem like a distant memory. That means you have an exciting opportunity to forge your new schedule as a mom. All of these changes, lack of sleep, and total home upheaval can certainly take their toll, compounding negative emotions. One of the best ways we have found to get through it is to make sure your new routines take into account your needs as well as your baby’s. Pumping while doing gentle postpartum exercise perhaps? Or meditating while enjoying skin to skin contact with your infant? We recommend making a list of ways you want to practice self-care and building them into your life in a way that works for you.

We know you’re a boss babe, but you simply can’t go through it all without a trusted team behind you. Luckily, motherhood comes with built-in postpartum mental health support. That’s right! From partners, family, and friends to doctors, doula, and other postnatal experts, you have the opportunity to curate a devoted inner circle to get you through even the most challenging emotions and trying times. So, before you give birth, or soon after, be sure to consider who you will call on when you need a friendly face or some really good advice. And please, please never be afraid to ask for help. Trust us, however you are feeling, you aren’t the first mom to feel that way. What you’re going through is never easy and you need and deserve all the love and support you can get!
