Getting Back to Normal After Pregnancy

By Complete Care Specialist September 01, 2021

Childbirth is a journey that does not end with birth. It's important to remember that normality after pregnancy can take a bit of time to achieve. After all, you're adjusting to life with a new person. 

Not to mention pregnancy takes a toll on your body. Your body needs at least six weeks to heal and longer if you had a C-Section. 

That's why an essential first step to regaining normality is to know when to ask for and accept help. 

Support Team 

When you're new to motherhood, everything can seem overwhelming at times. Between feeding every 3 to 4 hours, doctor's appointments, and lack of sleep, there's no time left to care for yourself. This isn't good for you or your baby. 

If a family member is offering to help with the baby, take that time for yourself.

Grab a nap. Your body needs a certain amount of quality sleep to function correctly. If you feel like you're getting burned out, don't be ashamed to ask for help.  

Give Yourself Time

After having a baby, it takes a long time to heal from the effects of pregnancy completely. For example, it can take your abs up to a year to recover. So don't be hard on yourself if you aren't back to your pre-pregnancy size yet. 

Exercising

Low impact exercises such as yoga, walking, or light weight lifting using hand weights can help your body heal faster. Exercising helps boost your mood and energy levels too. Be sure not to push your limits, though, or it can do more harm than good.  

Before starting to exercise, be sure to check with your doctor to make sure your body is ready for it. If you feel uncomfortable doing any exercise, stop and give yourself a break.

Setting a Schedule 

Humans are creatures of habit. We thrive on routines and schedules. That's why you should work on setting a plan as soon as you can.

When you have routines that you do every day, you and your baby know what to expect. This helps keep your baby happy and less fussy. You'll also have a better idea of how to calm your baby down if you have an established schedule. 

Depression After Pregnancy

Postpartum depression is a real thing and can be pretty scary at times. Some symptoms include: 

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Anxiety 
  • Mood swings (not just sad) 
  • Reduced appetite

If you notice any of these symptoms, contact your doctor to discuss them. Your doctor can help you work through this problem by prescribing medication or discussing other ways of dealing with these symptoms.
