The first 12 weeks as a new parent can often be described as total love fest with the new baby mixed with fatigue, unwashed hair, and an overwhelming sense of “what did I get myself into?!” Here are some helpful hints to make the transition from maiden to motherhood a little more comfortable.
Know Local Support Groups
Researching and organizing support and resources is never a waste of time and can only lead to less stress when problems arise.
Helpful support groups would include new mother support groups, sleep support groups, postpartum depression support, breastfeeding support groups and pretty much anything else where new parents gather to listen without judgement and offer kind words.
