Preparing for Birth: Postpartum Care

Welcome to the eighth week in our 10 week series on Preparing for Birth! This week’s focus is on Postpartum Care. Having a natural birth, I thought recovery would be a breeze (and for a lot of women it is) but it was definitely a more challenging time that I anticipated. I thought it would be good to share some of the things moms experience after the baby is born physically so if you haven’t given birth before, you would be aware and be prepared.

I’ll share what I am doing to prepare for the postpartum recovery period this time around and how I’m getting things ready for our family.

These moms have some great things to share about postpartum care as well:

Be on the lookout later this week for my post and a guest post from The Pierogie Mama on having a support team during your postpartum period.
