Recovery after childbirth is a priority during the postnatal period. The better you feel, both physically and emotionally, the easier the transition into family life will be, and the quicker you will regain your strength. So, never forget to make sure you are looking after yourself the best that you can.
Planning 30 minutes a day just for you will help:
- Build this time into your daily routine from the start.
- Ask your partner or a family member to spend a regular 30-minute time slot with baby.
- Take yourself for a lie down/ warm bath/shower or short walk - whatever helps you to relax best.
- Stick to this routine so you, your baby and your family expect it each day.
