Having a baby is a beautiful experience. But, let’s not pretend it’s all sunshine and rainbows! Giving birth can be an extremely traumatic and overwhelming experience. No two births are the same and everyone’s situation differs. The same goes when it comes to the feelings and emotions. Some mothers experience overwhelming joy whilst others get the baby blues. Here we have some first hand accounts where new moms share their first thoughts after giving birth. Take a look and always remember to be understanding towards, and not judgmental of, any new mother, or father.
Body Is Wrecked
Communication is key. The partner might not actually be ‘not looking’ it just feels that way. Share your insecurities and let him help you to feel better.
Some people can’t wait to go through the whole experience of having a baby all over again!
We would be shocked if this was true. You’re meant to wait a while after giving birth to have sex again!
We bet this feels great! What a confidence boost.
Tensions Are High
This isn’t an uncommon way to feel when you have a newborn!
Exited To See My Feet
This one made us laugh.
This sounds like an extremely difficult situation to cope with.
Moms need to stop being so hard on themselves. It takes time for your body to recover from pregnancy and child birth.
The fiance sounds like a jerk to us.
Too many people presume young moms are in over their head. Some naturally take to motherhood better than people who are older than them!
In Need Of Love
Aww, this is a shame. Sharing your feelings and needs is so important.
Once again many mothers feel like this! Sometimes it is permanent, sometimes it quickly wears off.
Too many people presume that all women are devastated to get stretch marks.
Thinking Of Leaving Him
Well, it doesn’t sound like the dad is offering much support so we don’t blame this person for wanting out!
One of the possible side effects of pregnancy that people struggle to deal with.
