Knowledge is power!
You don’t know what you don’t know so taking as many classes as possible, especially those offered by private instructors who are completely unbiased, is extremely important. Education regarding postpartum recovery is extremely important as well.
People often study childbirth and breastfeeding and follow Mom blogs and Facebook groups, but when it comes to postpartum we completely shift our focus from mom to the baby. Believe it or not, it’s not all about baby. Mom’s body needs time to heal physically and she needs to take time to reflect on her experience along with her partner. Together they need rest physically as well as a break from the day to day tasks so they may adjust to their new life as parents.
Self care and communication are powerful tools that so often get overlooked. Ensuring the family is well cared and able to communicate openly and honestly, for during the first 6 weeks postpartum (at least) is paramount to a solid recovery.
