4th trimester

4th Trimester

The 4th trimester is a very special time – it is a time of adjustment and of getting to know your new baby. Some babies are born ready for the world and others need another 3 months to adjust. Being a parent is very similar so it can be essential to give yourself another trimester to adjust to being a parent and to get to know your baby. You also need to give yourself some time to heal from pregnancy and birth. This can be a time to keep things simple and slow.
