postpartum midwifery care
After your baby is born the transition to parenthood truly begins. As much as we dream of what it’s like to be a mother while we are still pregnant, often our expectations don’t match up with the reality of what life is like with a newborn. As wonderful as it is to be a mother, it can also bring challenges in the early days.
Finding your way through matresence (the transition to motherhood), can feel like a rollercoaster at times. Your will have big hormonal shifts which can affect your emotions, your body is trying to heal and recover from birthing your baby, you will most likely feel sore for a while, be lacking in sleep due to feeds and be learning how to care for a tiny human with no guide book! It can feel overwhelming, and that’s ok.
