Embracing Motherhood and How to Care for Yourself

As a new mama, you have a lot of responsibility on your hands. You want to make sure that you treat your baby with the utmost care. However, you don't want to forget yourself. There are a few ways you can make sure to take good care of yourself as you embrace your new role as a mother.

1. Get a new look. Grab your iPad and a credit card. Log on to your favorite stores and purchase beautiful clothes. Give yourself a chance to get used to your new body so if need be, purchase clothes a few sizes up. Know that it won't be long until you get back to your normal size. Purchase beautiful sundresses that are easy to slip in and out of. Pick out a few shades of beautiful lipstick. Grab a few pairs of sunglasses and some concealer to erase the under eye circles from long nights with the baby.

2. Go to the spa. Visit your local spa for a massage and a facial. Your skin goes through so many changes through pregnancy. Give it some tender, loving care with a great facial and deep cleansing. If your body is feeling aches and pains, this is a great time to get a massage. To finish the experience, get a good manicure and pedicure. Choose pretty nail polish colors that'll make you happy.

3. Travel. Don't be afraid to travel after the birth of a new baby. Once you have the doctor's permission to fly, hop on a plan with your family and enjoy the beauty of a vacation. You can easily make arrangements to prepare for the baby. Rent a crib Florida and bring your blankets, pillows and other accessories for the baby's comfort. You might have to pack a little bit more than you would if you were packing for yourself. This is a part of being a new mama.

4. Use help. Understand that it's not bad to hire a nanny to help you with the process. If you have family members or friends that are willing to help, utilize their help. There will be times when you'd like a break so you can get some sleep, complete some work or go on a date with your spouse. These are the times when help comes in handy.
