As a new mom, you wish your infant can just stop crying and sleep for only a short while to allow yourself some time to sleep. However, the truth is that even after the baby finally falls soundly asleep you may not find it possible to sleep. Your sleep may be interrupted by an imaginary wailing only to wake up and find that your baby is still soundly asleep. In short, those wonderful nights of peaceful sleep before your baby came into your life are now a dream.
The result is that you find yourself spent out and exhausted from lack of sleep, postnatal anxiety, not to mention having your hormones wreaking havoc in your body system. Unfortunately, the physical demands may not be all you will be required to handle.
Some mothers end up experiencing mental exhaustion during confinement and mild memory loss after they have given birth.

These are some of the things you are likely to encounter in your new journey as a mother. However, taking some time off your schedule to meditate will be an excellent idea and will help you to get rid of postpartum blues.

Relax, this is nothing out of the ordinary, and you are just passing through a phase.
