Article by Cherlynn Ng
Pregnancy and childbirth can be immensely stressful — and the pressure doesn’t stop there. The confinement period can be equally exhausting and fraught with challenges. However, there are still many things you can do to make the most out of your experience and have a fulfilling postpartum journey so check out these awesome tips!
1. Spoil yourself
Well done! You have accomplished the incredible feat of carrying a baby for nine months and pushed it out of your body. This is no small achievement and it’s time to spoil yourself silly. How about signing up for a postnatal massage? Not only does it stimulate blood circulation and help you to relax, it’s also a wonderful treat after all your hard work. Because you deserve it.
2. Enjoy confinement foods
Who says confinement food has to be dull in order to be healthy? Dishes such as baked herbal chicken and green papaya soup with fish are both nutritious and delectable, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself licking your lips and wanting more! There are tons of recipes out there waiting to be explored, so get creative or hire a professional confinement nanny to help you out in the kitchen.
3. Get as much sleep as you need
Stop worrying so much and sweating the small stuff. Your priority now is letting your body heal from what it has been through the past gruelling nine months and regaining your strength. So get as much rest as you need without feeling guilty. Forget about household chores for a while and let someone else take care of them. A confinement nanny can be your best assistant during this time while you focus on recuperating.
4. Keep a confinement diary
Motherhood is an amazing milestone in life, from pregnancy to conceiving your newborn, and deserves to be celebrated. And what better way to immortalise these precious moments than by jotting them down in a diary? Not only will it help you to remember the good times and allow you to look back on them fondly as the years go by, it is also a good way to monitor your emotions as well as your postpartum goals and progress.
5. Speak your mind
Besides being an effective method for keeping postpartum depression at bay, opening up about your motherhood journey will give your loved ones a better understanding of what you are going through so that they are more empowered to support you in any way you need. Sharing your experience with other mums also gives you the opportunity to get recommendations and exchange confinement tips.
With these tips in mind, we wish you a happy and smooth postpartum journey!
