Postnatal Plans

Just like birth, your fourth trimester & postnatal journey deserves a plan and requires some thought.. Watch my full video on IGTV https://www.instagram.com/tv/CBu7fvaieRn/ to know more but to summarise, here are some of my top tips .

HIBERNATE: Set a time frame for cosying up inside your home (I recommend 7-14 days minimum). Watch tv, eat well, sleep, feed, sleep more & rest. You won’t ever regret slowing down, but you may regret the rush to go back to ‘normal’. Just stop ✋

VISITORS: Send texts and emails now to friends and family, explaining that you would like some time to yourselves before you have visitors. Yes, you may feel awkward, but your energy is more important. Those who matter will understand, so choose wisely who you allow into your space & save the other visitors for a couple of weeks later - your baby will still be little then and YOU are more important.
