5 Essentials for Women/Birth Giver Centered Postpartum Care & Healing by Lindsey Weinstein
No one tells you how intense it can be postpartum! But I’m here to say it. Please don’t get me wrong – it IS an oxytocin high like no other in your life. AND…giving birth and integrating that experience is the biggest, most physical, emotional, mental and spiritual thing you will ever do. So…how will you manage? Here’s my tip: self care, self care, self care. And it’s not fancy self care, but radical self care that is simple and rooted in things you can do right there at home during the first 6 weeks (hello pandemic…still) while you nest. Here are a handful of simple, yet potent ways to care for someone who has just given birth.
- Extended Rest
- Nourishing, Warm, Easy to Digest & Nutrient Dense Food
- Community & Support
