Nanit Supports Postpartum
Becoming a parent can be a joyful and happy time- but it can also be complicated, confusing and overwhelming.
NANIT are here to support you with tips, resources, community, and of course- extra sleep
We have partnered with Mama Disrupt to support their ongoing initiative to empower women to live their best lives! They will launch a three-part Wellness series, tackling three of the biggest challenges faced by mothers today: Motherhood Anxiety, Baby Sleep and Mama Overwhelm.
3 tips to
- Take postnatal supplements. Your nutrient needs are actually HIGHER after you give birth. Boost support for optimal health in your mood, energy support, milk supply, brain function, and more.
- Prepare your circle of postpartum experts before baby comes. Look for a lactation consultant, therapist, pelvic floor therapist, and night nurse so they're ready if you need them (we have resources!)
- Talk to your partner about how they can support you. Don't go it alone; ask for help managing doctor visits, washing bottles, or simply chatting while you nurse.
We wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that many parents of young children experience intense negative feelings, such as stress, anxiety, sadness, loneliness, and fatigue. In some parents, these feelings become so intense and frequent, that they may be diagnosed as postpartum depression (PPD).
PPD is a psychological disorder that affects 1 in 7 parents. It can affect any parent, whether this is your first child or not, and regardless of income, age, race or ethnicity, culture or education.
PPD is not your fault, and it can be treated. If you, or someone you know, is feeling intensely sad, anxious, hopeless, irritable, or guilty, and/or is experiencing difficulties sleeping, eating, thinking or concentrating—don't face these alone. Seek help from a psychologist, doctor, or other mental health providers.
