Seek support

After you have given birth, you might take some time to feel yourself again. You might not know who to talk to about the experience or any issues/worries you might have. The first thing to do is talk to a loved one, as they will offer support and might be able to point you in the right direction.

For example, your baby might have suffered an injury at birth and instead of speaking to the nurses at the time (due to shock) you might not know who to turn to. Therefore, speak to a friend or family member and then find the right people to help with the legal issue.

Take things slow

It is important to be kind to your mental and physical health after giving birth. It is a huge trauma on your body and patience and time will help you heal. 

For instance, you might not feel yourself in your new body and want to exercise again. However, if you want to get in shape after having birth, it is important to take things slow. Trying to get back to your exercise routine a few days after giving birth isn’t going to happen. Even if you feel fit enough to do so, it won’t help your recovery. Therefore, be gentle with yourself and ensure you ease back into physical activity. 

In a few weeks or months, you can get back to your normal routine. Yet, taking things slowly will ensure you avoid hurting yourself and do not hinder your recovery progress. 

It is a good idea to perform gentle exercises, to begin with, such as yoga and walking. Your body will know when it is time to take on more intense exercise. Hence, take things as slow as you need to before getting back to the usual routine. You will soon get your physical fitness back.

Expect physical recovery 

Your body won’t bounce back in a few minutes after giving birth. It is best to expect recovery. Having a baby can take a huge toll on your body. 

Therefore, do what you can to enhance recovery. Rest and self-care are great things to help speed up the process. 

Expect soreness and tenderness throughout your body and do not panic if you do feel different for a few weeks. It is normal and with the right care, you will get your health back.
