Make time for yourself – It is easy for new moms to get so wrapped up in the needs of their babies, that they forget to show a little bit of love to themselves. Here at Biebies we recommend you schedule a self-care routine consisting of all your favorite activities, schedule a relaxing massage, treat yourself to some chocolate, do some yoga. It does not matter what you choose to do as your self-care routine, all that matters is that it’s something you enjoy for yourself. A happy mother is a happy baby.
In this modern age we spend more time than ever looking at our phones, unfortunately being constantly connected has shown to stress our minds and our bodies. The Cortisol released by the stress may affect the ability to connect with your baby. That’s why here at Biebies we recommend you drop the phone and find time to meditate. Meditation has been shown to have a whole host of benefits such as stress and anxiety reduction, enhanced self-awareness, improvement of your ability to multitask, and it also increases grey matter in the brain improving memory. Using this method will not only calm you but calm your baby as well.
Another great step one must take when learning about motherhood is how to correctly feed your baby. If you plan on breastfeeding, we recommend you eat a balanced and nutritious diet. This advice is especially true if you have recently given birth, as your body is going to need all the help it can get to recover from the experience. Within the first few months you’ll soon realize sleep is very rare and also very valuable that is why making sure you’re fueling your body with the right nutrients is essential for a fast and easy recovery.
Take a prenatal vitamin – Even though they are small, your baby does a lot of important growing during the first month of pregnancy. The neural cord which later develops into the brain and spinal cord is one example of such developments. Prenatal supplements include essential nutrients needed to help your baby grow such as calcium, folic acid, and iron. Make sure to always consult your doctor before taking any supplements and ask which supplements are best suited for your needs.
Exercise - Keeping a healthy weight during pregnancy has been shown to have plenty of benefits for your growing baby and has been shown to make delivery easier. Even walking in a cool area or indoors can be shown to help. Speak with your doctor to see what kind of activity would work best for you.
Drink Water and Then Drink Some More – While pregnant, your blood volume goes up by 50 percent due to the supplying of oxygen and nutrients to the fetus. Drinking lots of water will help you avoid any pregnancy complications such as hemorrhoids, constipation, swelling, fatigue and much more.
Check the Scale – Pregnancy cravings are a real thing, but indulging too much can be detrimental to your health and your baby. What can be even worse is not gaining enough weight which could cause developmental problems. Always make sure you consult with a nutritionist or doctor about possible meal plans for you and your baby. Here are the recent guidelines on how much weight you should gain to be as healthy as possible, according to the Institute of Medicine if you are:
