8 New Mom Stresses -- and How to Relieve ThemJoy, excitement, and unfathomable love?
You've waited 9 LONG months for this new little bundle of joy...you endured hours (more?) of labor, being poked & proded in the hospital,
and now you're home! Congratulations! New momhood looks 'picture perfect' on social media; the perfect sleeping baby pic on Instagram or perfectly 'made-up' mom on facebook! You may be asking 'why isn't my baby a sleeping angel"? or saying "my hair hasn't been washed in 7 days, how do they do that"? Don't worry. Don't fret. Don't stress...IT WILL ALL BE OK. Grab a cookie (or two) and enjoy the messy house, the unwashed hair, the unanswered emails. GIVE YOURSELF SOME GRACE MAMA! It'll be ok...
