I thought I was completely prepared for the birth of my son in 2008. I read every single book out there about pregnancy, my husband and I attended an intense 12 week birth class, the nursery was complete and I had my bag packed with everything I could possibly need during labor.
I was blindsided by what happened immediately after childbirth and 2+ weeks postpartum. I thought I would jump out of bed and be completely fine after Derek was born. I mean, everyone tells you the horror stories of childbirth, but nobody tells you what happens AFTER the birth of your child. The heavy bleeding for several weeks, vaginal pain and swelling, hemorrhoids, huge breasts that leak everywhere, the lack of time and energy to prepare any kind of healthy food…
The last thing I expected was to send my husband out in the middle of the night to get essential supplies I never even thought of. I would have much rather had him at home to help me through the recovery period and bond as a family.
About a year later an idea struck me: I should create a bag with all of the essentials a woman needs after childbirth! Why hadn’t I thought of this sooner? This is the perfect thing to make the lives of new mothers much easier. One less thing to think about, right?
So, here it is…all in one place! Everything you need for the first few weeks postpartum:
- Nursing pads
- Chlorine free overnight maxi pads
- Disposable underpads for your bed/couch
- Directions and supplies to make your own peri ice packs (it’s easy and takes less than 2 minutes, I promise you!)
- Gifts from Think Cosmetics to pamper the new mother
- Delicious, healthy snacks
- Access to my Life After Childbirth: What to Expect During Recovery & the Secrets NOBODY Tells You About MP3 with specific information on recovery and what to expect postpartum
- A Guide to Postpartum Care
