  • This book is a wonderful read. Although many of the fourth trimester traditions explained in this book are not readily seen and applied in our Western/American culture it really does give an incredible perspective about how new Mother’s are cared for all over the world. Different countries and cultures have their own practices and traditions for caring for new mothers during the postpartum period but there is a common ground of roughly 21-60 days in which the mother is cared for completely so her entire focus can be on nursing her baby.  This books shares all about those incredible cultural practices. Although many of these cultural practices wouldn’t work in our culture due to dynamics there is a basic concept of supporting a mother and providing care for her for the first several months after a baby is born that we most certainly can apply in our own way. Taking time to allow your body to heal from birth is a large part of the postpartum journey. Have you read this book? If so what did you think? 📸 @goingholistic

  • The fourth trimester is such a special time. It is the postpartum period after baby is born. Many different cultures have different perspectives on the forth trimester and how long it should last and the care that is provided to mothers. Sadly, in our own culture we have seen a trend, especially on social media, of mamas “bouncing right back” after baby, fitting into their pre-baby jeans, going on big outings the second day after having a baby, the list goes on. But these are not accurate representations of what the fourth trimester should look like. After each of my kids were born I always took 3 months of rest. This meant I did the bare minimum and simply focused on nursing and taking care of my baby before going back to my normal routine and normal outings. I had help from my mother in law with my other little one, and help from my mother with housekeeping, and my nana would send meals every few days for my family so I didn’t have to worry about cooking. Some would say this is a long time but for me this is exactly what my body and my baby needed. Did you take a fourth trimester after baby was born? What did it look like for you and your baby? How long did you take?

  • Knowing signs and symptoms of postpartum depression and anxiety can be really helpful not only for yourself but also if you have friends and family who have just had babies. Knowing the difference between the two can also be a big help. This is a great comparison by @momdocpsychology.

  • When I think of the word postpartum there’s so many things that come to mind. I think of the fourth trimester and beyond, I think of postpartum depression & anxiety, I think of support, a transformation, the birth of a baby and a mother. I think of the blessings and the hardships. I think of a people coming together as a united body to lift up and support a new mother as she journeys through motherhood.  I think of young and old women coming together to teach and learn from one another. I think of a journey that goes far beyond the depths of the fourth trimester. I think of doing life together. 
When I think of the word postpartum I wanted to be able to sum it up with a handful of words. When I think of postpartum these are the words that come to mind. A people offering support, teaching, pampering and refreshing, transforming, united, motherhood moments.

  • The truth about becoming a mom is that we don’t always have it all together. We aren’t perfect. In fact we are all fragile beings that can only take so much. Let’s not forget about the mamas during postpartum. In order for moms to be able to take care of their baby’s they first need to take care of themselves. It’s ok to not be ok. But it’s not ok for us women to stand back and do nothing. Support goes a long way and comes in many different shapes and forms. 📸@maternalmentalhealthmatters

  • This is often a misconception about PPD & PPA. Many associate postpartum with after a baby is born however, expecting mothers can experience PPD & PPA as early as their first trimester for many different reasons. PPD & PPA can also come on much later in a mother’s postpartum journey. Another common misconception is that PPD & PPA occur directly after baby is born and that mom will begin to experience symptoms within the first couple of weeks. Unfortunately, this isn’t always true. Sometimes anxiety and depression can be triggered by various postpartum situations and can creep up months after baby is born and can feel as though it has come out of the blue. For some moms anxiety creeps up as baby gets bigger and begins to crawl and walk while others may experience it earlier. Some moms may experience PPA & PPD during their pregnancy but not during their postpartum period. PPD & PPA during pregnancy can be triggered by pregnancy complications, morning sickness, changes that occur in the body as it stretches and expands to make way for baby, and can also occur if the mother has experienced a miscarriage or loss of an infant previously.

  • This is a great visual by @dr.kellyvincent about the differences between baby blues, postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety.

  • Well we are finally moving into week 11 after extending our breastfeeding education portion. I feel like there is still so much more about breastfeeding to teach on but I’ll be sure to trickle that info throughout the page as I go. For now we are moving into our education portion on postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety. IF you were unable to attend our live video with social worker, Emily Pollack then please head over to our Facebook page where you can find both part 1 and 2 of the video!
