Are you searching for postpartum bliss?
Typically, we might hear about a newly betrothed couple enjoying marital bliss, or the excitement and newness of the honeymoon and newlywed days.
But when it comes to another major life transition, becoming a parent, that blissed-out feeling is a bit more elusive.
Things usually start out great. You share your pregnancy news with your inner circle and you can feel them rallying around you. Checking in on you and baby, creating your support squad, asking how they can help and celebrating!
But after baby is born, the realities of caring for yourself and a newborn take center stage. For the first couple of weeks, your circle is checking in and stopping by to help. But as the weeks turn into months, that blissful high you were riding starts to fizzle and fade.
How do we keep those feelings going?
Is it possible to create a postpartum experience and environment that encourages long lasting bliss?
