How to Stay Healthy as a New Mom
The postpartum period can bring a lot of joy, and a lot of concern, for new mothers. The vast majority of new moms report personal health worries within the first six weeks after childbirth, along with a desire to return to their pre-pregnancy state of health. With these tips, you can set yourself on a safe and gradual path through the postpartum period.
Treat Your Body and Mind Well
Avoid heavy exercise for a month after giving birth. Give your body time to recover before you put any further stress on it.
Drink Plenty of Water
Drink six to eight glasses of water per day, and even more if breastfeeding. Hydration is vital to keeping your body and mind in top shape.
Postpartum Depression Is Real
If you are experiencing unusual anxiety, sadness or a lack of energy, among other symptoms, don't hesitate to get in touch with your physician.
Feed Yourself Right
Never skip meals. You will be busy and sleep deprived, but your nutrition is still important.
Don't Forget to Fuel Yourself
Eat at least 4 1/2 cups of fruit and vegetables each day. The vitamins and minerals will keep you energized when you're deprived of sleep.
Eat More Protein Snacks
Keep healthy, protein-packed snacks in the house. Eating protein throughout the day keeps you feeling full and energized.
