Time is one of our greatest commodities here on earth.
And it is our responsibility to steward it well.
Many might think that taking 30-45 days to rest is absurd and excessive, but did you know that women who take time to recover and heal have less likely a chance of suffering PPD AND they are known to have longer life spans!
Did you know that there are actually 4 trimesters, not three? Many don’t view postpartum, or the season known as the 4th trimester, as an essential part of caring for the baby and mother.
How long do you take, purposefully, to recover from pregnancy and childbirth?
Do you allow yourself time to just rest and delight in your new little one? Or are you tempted to get up, go places, or clean around your home right away?
I was at the grocery store the other day and saw the sweetest new babe out helping her mommy shop. I asked how old she was and the mother replied, “Three days old.”
Flashback to my past.
I was that mom.
Wanting to get back to my life so badly I took my sweet bundle of joy out grocery shopping when she was just days old. Have you done that?
