Advice for getting over the birth

Advice for getting over the birth

"I can't cope anymore. I'm exhausted! When I do finally get to sleep, my baby starts crying and wants feeding again. Being a mum isn't all fun and smiles, even if I am totally besotted with him!" confides Laura in our forum.

If this sounds familiar, don't think that it's just you being weak!
The reasons for your exhaustion and distress are objective. It happens to many, many young mums. The sharp drop in hormone levels, the responsibility of looking after your baby, lack of sleep, the after-effects of giving birth, episiotomies, Caesareans and blood loss all have a major effect on a woman's body and mind, and there's nothing you can do about it.
