Becoming a mother is like discovering the existence of a strange new room in the house where you already live – Sarah Walker.
Are you pregnant, Are you going to start this journey or are you already a new mom. This post is for you all. The true fact is however well you prepare mentally and physically and how much ever you read about motherhood, the moment the little one is born, a mother feels as if she is on a roller coaster ride.
The lifestyle and parenting magazines have created a false image that journey of being pregnant and motherhood is something one should for sure enjoy and it only has happiness. Our minds are filled with images of happy pregnant and new moms we see on billboards, ads and pinterest. But truth may not be always this…..
1.For most new moms, breast-feeding doesn’t come easily
Though breastfeeding is a natural process, it need not be easy. Less than 50% moms manage to breast-feed exclusively for the six months that are recommended for a baby’s health. The moms who quit mostly are those who have faced trouble with breast-feeding in the first week with a new baby.
- Sore or Burning nipples
- Poor or Excess milk supply
- Plugged milk ducts
- Flat or inverted nipples
- Breast infection
- Breast engorgement
- Latching problem
2.Hate every minute of pregnancy
Half the female population hate being pregnant. Many a times people around and society are only happy about the pregnancy news and mother to be is left to bear all the pain and trauma associated with pregnancy by themselves. The process of carrying fetus for 40+ weeks is a tough job and for large number of women the journey becomes tougher with accounts of morning sickness, constipation, fatigue, body ache, swollen ankles and sore breasts.
Many people assume that if you hate being pregnant, you’ll hate being a mother.The fact is to hate ‘pregnancy’ is normal. Not liking pregnancy has no correlation with not liking the ‘Baby’.
3.Some moms don’t bond with their baby instantly
