Postpartum Wellness Plan for Expectant Mothers.

During our sessions we will set aside to consider the needs each mother after delivery and in bringing baby home. At Therapy For Moms, we have found in practice that having a plan sketched out in advance can serve new moms well. 

A postpartum wellness plan is essential to support a woman’s physical and emotional well-being during the weeks and months following childbirth.

Here are a few elements that can be included in a comprehensive postpartum wellness plan:


Postpartum Depression - Setting Boundaries

Setting Boundaries:

Establish clear boundaries with visitors and well-wishers to ensure you have the space and time you need for rest, recovery, and bonding with your baby.

Postpartum Education

Postpartum Education:

Educate yourself about common postpartum experiences, such as baby blues, postpartum recovery, and infant care, to be better prepared for the challenges and changes.

Postpartum Emotional Support

Emotional Support:

Arrange for a support system of friends and family who can provide emotional support, encouragement, and a listening ear during the postpartum period.

Mental Health Check-In

Mental Health Check-In:

Schedule regular check-ins with a mental health professional to monitor and address any postpartum mood disorders, such as postpartum depression or anxiety.

Self-Care Routine

Self-Care Routine:

Develop a self-care routine that includes time for relaxation, personal grooming, and activities that bring joy and relaxation. Prioritize self-care to maintain your mental and emotional well-being.

Nutrition and Hydration

Nutrition and Hydration:

Plan a well-balanced and nutritious diet to support physical recovery and breastfeeding (if applicable). Stay hydrated to maintain energy levels.

Exercise and Physical Recovery

Exercise and Physical Recovery:

Discuss a postpartum exercise plan with a healthcare provider and gradually incorporate gentle physical activity to aid in recovery and boost mood.

Sleep and Rest

Sleep and Rest:

Create a sleep schedule that maximizes restful sleep and ensures you are getting enough rest to recover physically and emotionally.

Baby Care Schedule

Baby Care Schedule:

Establish a routine for feeding, changing, and caring for your baby to reduce stress and create predictability in your daily life.

Arrange for childcare help, whether it's from a partner, family member, or a professional, to allow you time for self-care and rest.
