hey guys welcome back to mums world I
hope you all had an amazing week there’s a saying that giving birth should be a
woman’s greatest achievement and not her biggest fear when you bring a new life
into this world there will be huge changes in your life in fact your entire
routine will change having a baby is exciting challenging and for some it can
also add some mild stresses to their life and this is a very natural thing
this kind of stress is also known as baby blues and it vanishes in few days
or within a week you may feel extremely emotional cry for no reason find it hard
to sleep loss of appetite and sometimes even depressed this usually happens with
most women after childbirth because your body goes through a lot of hormonal
changes if you’re going through this kind of stress then don’t worry these
are very mild and it won’t stop you from leading a normal life but if it
does not go away after two weeks and continues for longer then you need to
call your doctor to seek immediate help this is something known as postpartum
depression which is more severe and intense
I won’t go deep into this topic in today’s video but it’s very important
for you to know when to seek help how to know if you have postpartum depression
here are some of the symptoms severe mood swings and excessive crying finding
it hard to accept the baby difficulty in sleeping or sleeping too much loss of
energy and feeling Restless loss of interest in life thoughts of harming the
baby and yourself regret over becoming a mom don’t feel like breastfeeding the
baby and bonding with the baby and so on to help you out I will be sharing some
simple tips to deal with stress after childbirth stop thinking or worrying too
much once you have a baby you have millions of questions running in your
head especially if it’s a newborn you’re always worried when your baby cries
too much or if your baby does not sleep enough and
when it comes to breastfeeding you are always concerned whether your baby is getting
enough milk just remember that worrying is not at all the solution it will only
affect your health after birth for a baby it’s an entire new world it will
take time for the baby to adapt to the life outside the womb and for the new
mom to get adjusted to these changes when you go to a new workplace you take
time to mingle with the people and get adjusted to the environment this is
exactly the same so you need not worry at all just enjoy the phase and be
confident about yourself babies cry to communicate their needs so it’s best
that you respond to their signals rather than worrying about it despite all your
swaddling and singing if your baby still continues to cry for longer then call
your doctor immediately there could be a physical cause sleep or take a nap
whenever possible lack of sleep is one of the major reasons for stress if your
little one is keeping you up all night then try to sleep when he is napping if you
find it hard to sleep during the day turn on some light music shut all the
curtains to get that night feeling and relax your body needs enough sleep to re bounce avoid all kinds of distraction like your phone your laptop watching TV
forget all the work that you have and take rest don’t compare your babies with
other babies for example your friends or relatives baby might be having a
different sleeping pattern some baby may sleep through the night and some baby
might have reached his/her milestone before your baby worrying about all
these things will only give you stress every baby is different if your baby is
happy and healthy then you need not worry at all don’t compare yourself with
other moms even though we think we’re pretty good at motherhood we always
compare ourselves with other moms who are better than us at handling
everything it’s normal for you to feel that you could do better but remember
one thing mother is not a competition we all want the
best for our babies and it’s okay if you can’t get it right all the time
you are the new mom with the new baby so it will take time for things to get
right in the meantime just do your best give some time to yourself after a baby
you become so busy that you forget to think about yourself take some time off
to go out and get some fresh air set aside time each day to relax with a book
or listen to music or watch a favorite movie even if it’s for a few minutes
spare some time and engage yourself in doing things you love to do the most
don’t read too many books on baby care or parenting it’s okay to read
books on parenting and child care but gathering too much of information will
always confuse you there is no right approach to parenting just observe your
child and respond to their needs follow your instincts and eventually you will
get it right stay hydrated staying well hydrated can keep your stress levels
down whereas when you don’t give your body enough fluids you’re putting stress
on it and a body will respond to that also nutrition plays a very important
role when you’re stressed so make sure that you eat healthy because what you
eat will have an impact on your mood as well as the quality of your breast milk
along with this do some breathing and mild exercises to relax your mind it’s
okay to take help sometimes handling everything all alone can be
stressful in such cases don’t hesitate to take help
having someone to help you out makes the adjustment to a new baby easier you will
also have enough time to take care of yourself
the baby & also bond with the baby when stressed out always remind yourself that
this too shall pass if you’re finding it really hard to cope with it talk to
someone don’t be afraid to call your doctor for additional support remember
