Rest with a newborn

new parent rest

The early days and weeks can be all about finding your feet with your new baby but it is also about looking after you.

You have been pregnant, you have birthed and now you have a newborn baby so you need to rest as much as you can. You will be in doing mode soon enough, so take an opportunity to be looked after while you can.

Plan in rest, plan in snoozes and a chance to just potter. The early weeks can be about giving yourself permission to take it easy, so you are not rushing around.

One thing that mums often say is that they wish they had rested more in the early days.

You can 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.

An experienced specialist in pregnancy, birth & early parenting, I have worked with parents since 2002. I am based in the North East so I regularly work with parents from Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead and across North Tyneside. Face-to-face sessions will continue with North East parents but digital courses and online sessions means I can work with parents everywhere.
