I’ve wanted to write these posts since having my baby but only so i could remember everything clearly. The birth for me was such a blur and my husband had to tell me what had happened after the event when we were back home.
You are so prepared for pregnancy because your reading all the books and taking all the advice in your stride. If like me you’d practiced your hypnobirthing, had your music and the meditations ready to go, you felt prepared if not a little anxious about the birth of your baby but because your bags where packed and car seat installed weeks ahead no panic.
However for me nobody gives you the forewarning you need to handle what your body and mind will go through after birth! So next week I’d like to take you through my essentials to get you through plus some of it may be a little TMI so you can pick and choose to read, you’ve been warned.
This week however I’ve made a massive step towards my recovery and am back on the roads again in my own car I can’t tell you how much this has helped me mentally!
Now I’m not saying you have to drive to enjoy maternity leave or anything silly like that because we have done just fine walking for the past 9 weeks. For me though it was a fantastic leap forward as I feel like I was missing the freedom of not having a vehicle just in case.
A great leap for someone else may be getting back in their jeans or been able to go on a night out.
I’m looking forward to using my rediscovered freedom to live the #maternity leave life I dreamed of lol.
So please stay tuned because of the coming weeks I’ll be trying to give tips and advice about how to make the most of a crazy postpartum experience. Ps. It all worth it when they smile ☺️
