The First Six Weeks

Hello, Bump

Mamamia Podcasts

The First Six Weeks

Happy? Sad? Depressed? Confused? Tired? Disorientated? Angry? Ecstatic? Welcome to normal. The baby is here, you're beginning your life as a parent, and things can feel a little foggy. In the final episode of Hello Bump, we will walk you through those first weeks. Midwife Cath talks us through the post-pregnancy poo, dealing with stitches, breastfeeding, nipples, sleep, and postnatal depression. Bec Judd has advice for when your milk comes in, and why well-meaning visitors aren't always the best idea.  And for any non-mums listening along, we have the best thing to take new mums in those first fragile weeks. Spoiler: it's not flowers.
