I get asked regularly, “How can I have the best Postpartum Experience possible?” “What do I need to plan for?” “How do I prepare for life after baby comes?” Postpartum Planning isn’t just for 1st time mamas. Sometimes even 2nd and 3rd time (and beyond) moms want their next experience to be smoother than the first.
Feel free to share this with anyone you know that is expecting. (Extra idea: for a baby shower, don’t give the usual card with your gift, instead give them this planning guide – you can tell I am extra passionate that every mom needs this – haha).
This Ultimate Postpartum Planning Guide contains all the questions I want expecting mothers and new families to think about BEFORE they are in the trenches – feeling exhausted with dropping hormones, recovering from giving birth, and adjusting to their new little one. Believe me, the first few weeks and months after baby arrives can feel like a blur, but if you have thought through these questions ahead of time, it will make your transition to motherhood easier. When you have a back-up plan for any bumps in the road, ideas for getting more rest, and where to turn for support, you will thrive even if things don’t go perfectly as planned.
Ideas for Self Care, a Postpartum Supply List & Postpartum Affirmations are included as well so you can have the best recovery possible. Here is the link to download this complete guide: Ultimate Postpartum Planning Guide
P.S. I have to give a shout-out to Michelle White with Rest Dress. She originally started working on this and then invited me to collaborate with her. I love the Rest Dress and her vision for helping new moms along their journey.
