This is just a short follow up on my previous post about the importance of a postpartum lying in period, and postpartum care in general. After we have our babies, we focus so much on how baby is doing, which we should. This beautiful video by Elizabeth Stopford entitled “The 10th Month” is an artistic and eloquent reminder of how important it is to also focus on how we are doing. Those first few weeks are amazing and beautiful, but they can also be difficult and frustrating. That is all ok. Just keep checking in with yourself to see how you are doing, and you’ll see that each day gets a little better. If you haven’t asked yourself in days, weeks, or months, “How am I doing?”, take the time to do so today, and regularly moving forward.
