Moms-to-be and new moms are all about their babies. And why wouldn't they be? Moms want to provide for their newborns' every need. But we at Fit Pregnancy believe that it's just as important for new moms to care for themselves. After all, new moms are experiencing a new transition in their lives--a time when both their bodies and their souls could use some special attention. The Taking Care of You Guide offers tips on just how to do that. The guide covers subjects as varied as pampering your skin, making the perfect healthy snack, communing with your soul through meditation or yoga, indulging your need for rest, paying attention to your dreams, embracing your new body, and pre- and post-baby sex.
Take our advice: Pamper yourself in ways that feel right. A happy Mom makes a happy baby!
