8 Things You Ought To Know When Going In For Delivery

Published on

Are you close to the day you have been looking forward to since 9 months? Read on to make this experience worth remembering for all your life.


1. Breathe right

Studies have shown that 76% of women report poor sleep during pregnancy. The remaining women are believed to not get ample sleep. The reason behind these altered patterns of sleep is distress because of what goes in your head ceaselessly.

Deep breathing coupled with positive thoughts would keep you from over thinking, restoring sleep pattern to normal.


2. Postpartum depression

If you have history of anxiety or depression, you are more likely to get depressed after delivery. However, you can prevent yourself from falling into the trap by visiting a therapist and taking the necessary steps.


3. Child birth class

Taking a childbirth class is a good option as it keeps you prepared in regard to what you ought to expect during labour and help you plan the course of action when things fall out of your hands.


4. Breastfeeding needs assistance

It is obligatory for you to feed your child for the first six months. You might be wrong to think that you would manage it all without any assistance. Before you go in for your delivery, visit a lactation consultant.


5. Be ready

Neither would you receive a letter nor would the universe give you signs to convey that you need to call the ambulance. You ought to stay ready a little before your due date. Pack a bag with all the essentials and pre-register in a hospital. Make sure your home has the necessary stuff so that your family does not suffer when you are not around.


6. Inform your family

You need support in both joy and disquiet as you move towards motherhood. So take support from family and friends. If you do not have family or friends, think of other options like hiring a nurse or joining mom groups.


7. Eat small meals

Make sure not to eat too much around your due date. This is rather valid for all your nine months. You can eat more frequently, but do not over eat. There are chances for you to throw up after adopting gluttony. You must also not forget to stay hydrated.


8. Go out with your partner

You have given your 9 months devoutly to your baby. There must have been times when your partner might have felt neglected. To make it up to them, plan a short trip where you can discuss things you have always wanted to.


Remember, motherhood is believed to be one of the best experiences. Make sure you stay away from all forms of depression or anxiety to make it an even better one. We hope you have a blessed baby. J
