You at 10 Weeks Postpartum 👩
As you move into your new role as a mother, you and your partner may also be going through a shift, figuring out your new roles together as parents. (Not to mention you’re both sleep deprived!) For some, this transition may require a little bit of work, communication, and collaboration.
Going from a couple to a family of three can be a tricky transition. Here, you might find some helpful tips on how to transform your relationship and effectively communicate with your partner. To help you along even further, here are some ways you can support each other and find more time throughout the day:
- Divvy up the workload—make sure you are equals in the parenting department
- Set expectations for daily routines (i.e. papa does bathtime, mama does bedtime story)
- Create a flow chart for mama and papa (this will help you understand what needs to happen daily and who will be in charge of what)
The first few months as parents can throw you for some unexpected relationship loops. As long as you stay connected to your partner and communicate your wants and needs, things should start to fall into place. Soon this whole parenting thing will become second nature. You’ve got this, mama (and papa!).
