5 Real Truths About the Fourth Trimester:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Remember, you are doing an incredible job, mama! I know you don't believe us. You glossed over reading those words, believing they were meant for someone else.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, Mama, they are meant for you🥰
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2.  You may not enjoy every minute, and that's okay💕
Somewhere along the way, we absorbed this idea that motherhood should be one blissed-out-so-in-love-with-my-child moment after another. While those moments do exist—and they are wonderful—they are not always the constant.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. You'll be confused by your body
Everything feels different and quite weird, to be honest. But just because it's confusing, doesn't mean it's not something to be immensely proud of. No matter how a baby comes into your life, your body will change because of it. It's moulding and changing to accommodate the new life that it is supporting. It may be healing and doing one hundred things to keep you healthy too.✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How powerful is that?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. You are not alone🌸
The first months of motherhood can feel a little isolating, but mama, you are not alone.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From a village of other new mamas out there to lactation consultants, from your child's pediatrician to a therapist, there are people who are able to—and want to—help you. So please don't hesitate to reach out.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Self-care is not selfish
New mom guilt would have us believe that every waking second should be spent taking care of our babies. But having a baby doesn't make you suddenly unimportant, or un-human. Quite the opposite! You need more care than ever before.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So please, please do not feel guilty about taking care of yourself✨
