I think most moms will agree that the most challenging time is the time after delivery. The biggest adventure of life begins here. Total adjustment with sleeping hours, cellphones, friend circle, outfits, etc. Most of us have that happy wala 9 months then delivery also quite easy but after that stitches pain, sleepless nights, and obviously breastfeeding.
For me, breastfeeding was too much challenging. During my C-section, doctors observed that my muscles were too weak. I was exposed to the risk of incisional hernia. On one side I was so happy to have that little life in my hand and on another side unable to carry him even once due to hernia.
I was sad as I could not celebrate the arrival of my champ as I had thought. It had a direct impact on my breastfeeding. My little one was remaining hungry and crying and this made me guilty all the time. It was the 3rd day of delivery and my breast became so heavy and painful. My little prince was unable to latch and on the other side mom and aunty and their traditional practice of massage to the breast. I can still feel those painful vibrations. Next day with doctor meeting she tried to take out milk with dull injection I literally screamed. Gradually everything started settling down. It was just 20 days and I had a breast infection. The doctor said if it would not be cured by 24 hours then I have to go for surgery. I was just praying God and was very guilty as I could not feed my baccha on time.
Tough time was yet to come. I was diagnosed with umbilical hernia. That pain of stitches and hernia and on the other side breastfeeding issue. The happiest moment turned into a sad one.
I was less concerned about my health as I had to be strong for my little champ.
Days were passing, we both were adjusting with each other and with the support of family members, everything started soothing. Today my champ has completed 9 months journey. With all good and bad we both are happily living together.
Tough time will always come but we have to be strong.
So to all lovely mothers, be strong and bold enough to fight with all the problems.
