In + On + Near Bed
I’ve been thinking how Postpartum is comparable to other up and down seasons of life
Postpartum is filled with peaks and valleys and takes a tremendous toll on your body emotionally and physically
I recently saw @themidwifeisin had a baby. She shares, in the beginning of Postpartum she spends 5 days in bed, 5 days on the bed and 5 days near the bed . Have you heard of this practice or a similar practice before?!
It is v similar to how other cultures around the world embrace Postpartum
If you are thinking, no way Emily I can’t be in bed + on bed + near bed for ~15 days total, well improvise
The idea is to allow yourself time to heal, rest and nurture you + your partner + your baby + rest of fam
