Preparing for and delivering a baby can take a toll on a woman - emotionally and physically. So, it’s important that adequate time be spent after baby is born to adjust. There are many changes that come with a newborn, actually most of everyday life is altered, so alone time to get acquainted with all the newness is critical. As mothers ourselves, we can’t stress the importance of alone time post baby so that moms can rest, renew, contemplate life with another being, and tend to relationships that shouldn’t fall by the wayside.
Importance of Alone Time Post-Baby: Alone Time for Yourself
You may have many people wanting to give you a hand with your little one after birth, which is lovely. Take up offers for assistance as you want and need. You don’t have to accommodate every request to come “help,” but it can be nice to have some alone time to let your mind, spirit, and body recover. If you have friends or family who have offered to take care of baby for a bit, or even if it’s your partner who mentioned helping out, it can do you some good to sleep, take a long shower, meditate, or even read a book to relax.
Alone Time with Your Partner
As you take care of everything your new baby needs, remember that your partner is going through much of the changes you are. A new family member, less time with you, uncertainties around what baby needs; these are just some of the things that will be different. Some alone time as a couple can address the change in your level of togetherness that was there before baby arrived.
Alone Time with Baby
Navigating parenthood isn’t always easy. From the start, it can seem like there’s so much to know that you don’t already know, and thinking about the responsibility of being a mother can be heavy.
