It is important for new parents to rest

resting as a new parent

Rest is so important as a new parent – you could be tired/exhausted from birth, you are meeting the needs of a new baby, you will be having broken sleep and it all could be a bit emotional.

Rest when you can, nap and snooze, take it in turns with your baby in the early days, ask for help in the later weeks and months when you are tired.

There’s no extra reward for powering through and being totally drained – plan for some rest!

Book a session with me if you have questions, need some additional support or preparation for birth & baby.

Always seek medical support if you are concerned about yourself or your baby. Even if it is just a feeling that something isn’t right.
