1.Breast engorgement followed by milk leaking which felt shameful in the presence of others.
2. The episiotomy suture pain I have went through 🥵 which led to failure in comforting the crying baby
Above all, when I look at her cutie face I ll forget the pain

Challenges after delivery:
1. Breastfeeding : I used to have lot of milk from day 3 after delivery. My son was not able to drink milk fast due to heavy flow.
2. The worst part is my dress was always wet due to heavy milk during the first 3 months.
3. Later on it was good.
4. Heavy backpain after delivery till now, which is a nightmare.
5. No time for self-care.
6. My son is 5 years old now, never left him with anyone for at least 1 hour.
7. Since March he is going to school, getting some free time.

this is true... even I cried a lot when my baby was crying for milk and I'm unable to satisfy him..
no one understand the pain what mother is going through..
Same for me.... it was worst feeling ever.... I used to think where I failed to take care of myself during pregnancy.... or something wrong with me...

Since our baby was premature, she was in NICU for 5 days due to sugar fluctuations; Breastmilk production, extraction to be given in NICU; had to keep her in certain temperature for first few weeks; only sponge bath for almost 1.5 months ( where people asked to give oil bath n doctors asked not to.. we went with doctor's advice) ; finding dress that fit her; Asking visitors to use hand sanitizer before touching baby; handling Anxiety when visitors with cough / cold/ fever came; Not to get offended when people commented that she is tiny; Increasing her weight by hourly feed and formula combination - an hour or two sleep per day for almost two months which resulted in back pain later - that almost made me bedridden for a day;

Now she is almost nearing baseline weight at 8 months. She has this special smile only for me; she is real fighter - has overcome so many obstacles; Makes my days special; except that she is not chubby , she is now active and reaching milestones as expected.

Never thought being a new mother will be a total change in my life . when you are being said cnt you make her quite? What kind of mother are you don't anything how to carry,feed,etc it's hurts because we try our best to be a good mother. No one's try to understand your mentally, emotionally condition they just see u as a mother of a child and we being a mother we don't leave any stones unturned. Only happiness you get when you see ur baby smiling at you with no complains.
Now I have a best friend that's my daughter as we also share our birthday 😊.

my baby is 11 months and still wakes up multiple times at night. it will take time. You take support from your partner or family members.

i thought the delivery was the tough part.but growing a baby is far difficult then that.i had no idea how to take care of my baby and no one is around to guide,and the one who taught me everything is my baby.it feels like i am not the one who gave her birth rather she has given me the second birth in a single life.

Mother go through with many ups and downs but most challenging for me to calm down myself from dialogue by others after my mistake starts with the only sentence “now you are a mother of a child☹️”
