The postnatal period ought to be a happy ending for us all after a healthy birth process where we are blissfully bonding with our baby and preciously nurtured.
It’s a time when the woman is supposed to be served and protected.
But for many women it is a lonely and challenging time.
For those of us without any family support we have to get back to cooking the food, doing laundry and keeping the home looking half decent for guests or health professionals who drop by, often against our wishes, at a time when we’d like to be snuggled up in bed and chilling out. There are huge expectations that we should ‘get up and get on with it’. The rest required is no longer honoured by our society.
As a mother of 7 I know only too well how much there is to cope with as a family grows.
- Our body is leaking from all sorts of places.
- We’re rocking our hormones, (or are they rocking us!?).
- We can’t watch or hear anything sad without flooding with tears.
And yet we’re expected to jump up, put the baby down, and do the dishes.
