Baby Blues

I remember this time so vividly after having Jorja. Not so much with Jazmine, I probably had one episode of tears but with Jorja there were a lot more!! If anyone even attempted to be nice to me, it was enough to set me off. A huge roller coaster of emotions as my life had suddenly changed forever but something my Mum always talked about when I was pregnant, baby blues on day 3!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ T H E • most common time for the ‘Baby Blues’ to kick in is around day 3-5 postnatally. That’s because you’re milk is starting to “come in” (you have milk before then it’s just a different kind of milk-colostrum) you may be extra tearful and some women even say they miss being pregnant. What ever emotion needs to come out, let it all out. Release, breathe and let it come and go. In general the postnatal period can be a lonely place for some women too – don’t feel you are the only one that feels like this, you’re not. Reach out to your mates, your mum or even your neighbours. Talk to your midwife, health visitor any any other professionals you feel like talking to. Use apps, social media and the digital age to your advantage and tell people how you feel that you can trust. A problem shared is a problem halved. You got this 😘 ⠀⠀
