  2. Write down your affirmations and post it in a place where you will see it every day.
  3. Repeat your affirmations to yourself as many times as possible throughout the day – in the morning, after lunch, before bed, etc.

What You Can Do to Help Yourself Heal after Childbirth

Before we wrap up, I want to share with you some tips that can help you get through postpartum.

  • Take it one day at a time. Every day is different, and every day brings new challenges that are just as important as any other challenge.
  • You can’t expect yourself to be perfect all the time because there are so many factors out of your control during this difficult time in your life. Expecting perfection from yourself is unrealistic and will only cause more stress on top of everything else you’re dealing with right now.
  • Take care of your health by eating well, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep.
  • Spend time with friends who make you feel good about yourself – don’t spend time with people who bring you down or criticize you.
  • Remind yourself that this too shall pass, and it will get easier as time goes on.
  • Find someone to talk to about what’s going on with you, whether a friend or professional support.
  • Get rid of the guilt – nobody is perfect! You’re doing a fantastic job just for being here!

Final Thoughts

To say that postpartum can be difficult is an understatement. But, know that there are many resources available to help you through this time in your life. One of these tools is postpartum affirmations which can have a significant impact on the wellbeing of new moms.
If you are struggling with postpartum symptoms, please seek professional help from a therapist or doctor to ensure your safety and the safety of your baby.
