The postpartum phase - what you should consider during this time and how you can overcome the time!

What is the postpartum period?

The postpartum phase, also known as the puerperium, begins with the birth of a child and usually lasts 6-8 weeks. During this time, the mother's body recovers from the exertions of childbirth and adapts to the changes that come with being a mother. It is also a time when the mother and newborn spend time together to bond and adjust to each other. During this stage, the woman may also experience physical and emotional changes caused by childbirth and hormonal changes. It is important that women receive the support and care they need during this time to have a successful recovery and adjustment to their new role as mothers.

During this time, there are a few things you should pay attention to in order to recover as best as you can, both physically and emotionally, and to reintegrate into everyday life after the stressful birth.

These 7 things will help you master the postpartum period!

  1. Postpartum Care: It is important to seek out qualified postpartum care to ensure you receive the support and care you need to recover from childbirth. A midwife or childcare worker can help you monitor your physical and emotional health and give you advice on how best to care for your baby.

  2. Physical and Emotional Changes: After childbirth, the body goes through many changes. It's important to take time to recover from the exertions of childbirth and adjust to the changes. It is also important to be aware of emotional changes and feelings such as fear, depression or anxiety and seek professional help if needed.

  3. Partnership and family life: A new baby brings changes in relationships and family life. It is important to reserve time for the partnership and family and to communicate with each other in order to process the changes and to accept the new role of parent.

  4. Reintegration into everyday life: After the birth, it can be difficult to get back into everyday life. It's important to have realistic expectations and not expect too much at once.

  5. Exercise: Exercise helps you recover faster and replenish your energy reserves. If you feel able, try to go for a few minutes' walk each day or do some light exercise.

  6. Accept help: You don't have to do everything on your own. Get help from friends, family or a postpartum caregiver. It's perfectly okay to ask for and accept help.

  7. Be patient with yourself: remember that everyone is different and that the postpartum period can be different. Be patient with yourself and give yourself time to adjust to your new role as a mother.

It is important to keep these points in mind during the postpartum period to ensure you have the best possible recovery and health and are able to function successfully in everyday life.
