Those glowing pictures of happy new mums holding newborn babies that we see all over social media make childbirth seem like no big deal. But giving birth is a life-altering experience and many women (thanks to those happy snaps on Instagram) have a somewhat unrealistic idea about how fast postpartum recovery should be. The truth is, your body is trying to heal while at the same time as nourishing a hungry newborn, so give yourself a break!

We caught up with Nyree Adams, co-founder of postpartum care range Mum Bub Hub. Here she shares her three top tips for getting back on your feet and feeling better faster.

1) TIPS FOR POSTPARTUM RECOVERY: USE A SITZ BATH

Sitz baths are one of our favourite postpartum recovery tips. It is essentially a warm, shallow bath or sitz pan with bath herbs or salt soak which can feel like the ultimate relief once you’ve given birth. Not only is it soothing, it can also encourage the healing process, increase your circulation, reduce swelling and ease itching.

2) TIPS FOR POSTPARTUM RECOVERY: BE PREPARED FOR HEAVY BLEEDING

Be prepared for the heavy bleeding. Don’t be alarmed by the amount of blood you lose after giving birth, also known as lochia. This is your womb shedding after all of those months period-free. It had to come to an end at some point! Keep your iron stores up with leafy green veggies and keep drinking water.

3) TIPS FOR POSTPARTUM RECOVERY: BE KIND TO YOURSELF

Be kind to yourself. Don’t put pressure on yourself to get back to your usual routine. You just created a human you Superwoman! It’s also important to highlight that it’s not simply a process of physical recovery, but equally, a mental and emotional one so be kind and compassionate to yourself.

Mum Bub Hub products are available in all Mama Hug care kits.
