Those first newborn weeks can certainly seem overwhelming, when you’re in the thick of it, but also as a pregnant woman awaiting that time.
It certainly is life changing, but in a good way!
These little humans are reliant on you and they are growing at a rapid rate. They are trying their little best to communicate, but sometimes it doesn't always seem clear what they want.
Sometimes a bum change, sometimes to be fed, maybe it's just a cuddle.
As I interview Pinky McKay who is one of Australia's most recognised and respected breastfeeding and early parenting experts.
Listen to this Podcast on Early Parenting Tips for Those Newborn Weeks on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts or here directly at PregActive.
Pinky specializes in gentle parenting styles that honour mothers' natural instincts to respond to their babies, which is just golden, and in today's society with external pressures, for many new Mothers self-doubt easily creeps in.
As we chat together, Pinky shares some useful tips to help best prepare you for those newborn weeks.
As Pinky says, 'support is essential for all new mothers and the professionals who work with them - by lifting each other, women thrive, mothers can reach their breastfeeding goals and families can enjoy a gentle, connected beginning.'
Join us for a beautiful chat all about those newborn weeks.
