The Postpartum Period
Why the TBS Postpartum "Tuck-In" is so vital for the new mother
When a mother is expecting a baby, there is so much emphasis placed on pregnancy, labor, and birth. Once baby arrives, that emphasis and attention is now focused on the newborn, and often, the mother is now left to figure out how to get through the 4th Trimester, the post-partum period.
During this time, the mother is now going through many changes in her life, mind, and body. She begins a battle with uncontrollable emotions, hormones, and physical changes. Excited people around her are constantly asking " how's the baby?", but rarely do they remember to ask "How are you doing? How are you feeling? Did you eat"?
Many women unknowingly are unprepared to handle getting through this difficult time. She and those around her are focused on caring for the new little one and does not take the appropriate care needed for her; the new “mom”.
In many other countries and cultures, there are a tribe of women that are there as soon as she gives birth or comes home from the hospital to care for the mother. In some places, the option to stay home from work for up to a year postpartum with pay is available. With this kind of support, the mother and babies’ needs are fully able to be taken care of. An absolute must for baby and mom! Unfortunately, this type of support is not as common as we would like or need here. Quality services dedicated to this time and care are now becoming more and more available. Tara’s Birth Services is one of those places.
A woman goes through a lot mentally and physically for nine months and she should be honored and cared for after birth. This is the time that it is imperative to “tuck-in” MOM! Family and friends should be sure to do this daily; in-person or via phone or text. Reach out to her!
In the US, most women are discharged from the hospital anywhere between 24-48 hours after having a vaginal birth and 3-4 days after a cesarean. They are not scheduled to see their providers until 6 weeks later. This is a long period of time to be without professional care. The “TBS Postpartum Tuck-in” visits are so important because they can bridge that gap!
