There’s a Transition to Being “Mom”, and it Takes Getting Used To

You’ve just totally changed your life. The moment a child is conceived within you, the trajectory you were on shifts. This is for the better, but it will take a while for you to see the full reality of that truth. Pregnancy can be awkward, birth is traumatic, you’ll be without decent sleep for a few years, and then you’ve got society to deal with.

Even so, you have brought new life into the world that can similarly extend humanity. You will see how the mind develops in a child from earliest life until adulthood. You’ll have some of the most joyous experiences of your life, learn things about yourself and reality, and find you’re a more well-rounded, wiser person who has greater success than you would have otherwise.

Having a child is like weight training for life. It’s not comfortable, but when the exercise has finished, you are stronger and remain that way. Muscles go away, your experience makes a mark on your core inner self. That said, finding your “sea legs” or your “cruising altitude”, as it were, is a bit difficult. Consider these tips to help you make your way as a new mom.

Tactics to Help the New Mom Find Her Rhythm

  • Find Mutual Support Through Spouses and Support Networks

Ideally, the father of your child is readily available to help with parenthood duties. For many families, this will be the case naturally. However, not all mothers have this luxury. That’s one good reason it’s wise to find a support network you can rely on.

You want parent resources, parental support groups, and daycare options readily available. Such networks are wise even if your spouse is with you.

  • Get Needed help From the Experts

Why trust in your own abilities over those of professionals who have been through your situation? Sure, you can reinvent the motherhood wheel, but it’s already been spinning for countless generations. That is to say: you might as well learn from the experts, there’s a lot of knowledge to tap into regarding latch positions and the like.

  • Prepare Prior Birth as Much as Possible

Get the baby a crib, design a room for the baby, baby-proof that room for safety, acquire formula, bottles, clothes, diapers, wipes, diaper bags, and all the other things you need prior to the child’s birth; here’s a list to examine. Again: you can’t anticipate everything, but you can give yourself an easier time of it through advance preparation.

  • Hitting the Ground Running

When you prepare prior to the birth, get advice from experts, and lean into the support of both your spouse and any parental networks you can find that are trustworthy, you’re more likely to find your “rhythm” as a new mother, and with expedience. Motherhood is a challenge, but it’s rewarding. Just remember that everything you’re going through betters the world.
