By the time you reach your third trimester you have probably read countless articles about kegels and hospital bags. And about water births vs squatting births, and about how imperative it is that you try different positions during labor. And you are maybe even feeling a little overwhelmed by it all.
I wrote out this postpartum recovery checklist after my FIRST baby, knowing I’d want to be better prepared the 2nd time around And yet, the 2nd time around I still showed up at the hospital with a half packed labor bag, and a mostly ignored postpartum recovery checklist.
The birth of a baby is life changing; the sort of event that will always teach us new things. But the birth of my second baby showed me something totally unexpected – it showed me how badly I missed out on ENJOYING the precious moments of the first week at home with me first baby. The first week with baby (or the first month, even) is a special and unique time… and there’s truly no way to be fully prepared for it.
~ I’m on a new adventure with the Squishy Baby, figuring out this mommy thing one day at a time. Raising little people while keeping our homes and finances under control might be a challenge, but it’s one I’m excited to tackle… and I want to encourage you to tackle it too.
