life takes a 360 degree turn after delivery...
never ending thoughts run in your mind the whole day and night.
after putting all efforts - still u will feel that something is lacking as a mother for my baby...
but then it's worth it when u see your baby comfy with the things.

I had C section delivery in the month of July for the first time.The first problem was I am unable to do the things on my own like I need support to sit ,stand ,walk, unable to eat and to take care of lil one.The second problem was after few days I had dizziness and I slept for more than usual.The third problem was breastfeeding there are issues with latching.I had overcome this problem by giving sleeping suggestions to the baby.Once the baby started latching I had breast pain.The fourth problem was sleeplessness since the baby was not habituated to our regular sleep time.The fifth problem was lack of milk production.I consumed raw papaya,methi seeds, barely seeds,drumstick leaves powder which increased the milk production a lot.The sixth problem was to understand why the baby was crying or feeling uncomfortable.After a month everything got set right and now we are having lots and lots of smiles every day.
Gone through same situation. Now the another problem i am facing is my tummy. Still i am looking like pregnant. And i don't know when it will be normal.

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.

It feels really inspiring to read about challenges other moms have faced during the post partum period. I am the mother of a 3-months-old baby boy. My delivery experience was horrible as after almost 24 hours of contractions trying for normal delivery, I went for caeserian. After delivery, I traveled home for just a couple of months but came back last month as I was missing my hubby and he was missing both of us. Since then it has been extremely challenging, with me trying to manage my baby's every need and also my own health as I am still suffering from back pain n headaches.
Reading these posts have given me hope. That there are more like me n these days shall pass. Please like if you loved what I shared. Keep more coming!

I didn't get a single day rest after c-section delivery. I had to look after my baby alone as my mother in law was keeping herself busy in kitchen. I was not getting proper and timely diet. As they wanted to harass me in every possible way wether mentally or physically. I used to cry when my husband was leaving for the office. As it was my first baby so I knew nothing about baby care n all. Till now I am going through this but can proudly say I bought up my child on my own. 😎
It sounds like my story...
How are you now??

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.
