Making Time for Self

Being pregnant, and then especially taking a newborn home for the first few weeks is often “all about the baby”. This is a very exciting time in your life and the many tasks of caring for a newborn can easily consume your day. Most of the work is joyful and you are probably thrilled to actually have your baby in your arms.

However, taking care of yourself will help you do a better job of everything else and investing time in yourself is sometimes left on a back burner for too long. Below you will find a list of a few suggestions that might help.

You may not get long periods of time to yourself initially when you come home with a baby, so choose to take each moment and enjoy them!
