You Should Be your Priority Still
I am a great supporter of self-care. You should always pamper and love yourself in the best possible way. Ensure you treat your body and take good care like you used to do before conceiving. As post-pregnancy, most of the women focus on their newborn. They hardly have a minute for themselves in twenty-four hours. Remember, if self-care is not there, you will never get self-confidence. It would help if you cared emotionally as well as physically. Like for example, many new moms take a quick shower in jus like 2 minutes. And rush back to their baby duties. Instead, relax and give time to yourself. Distribute baby duties among family members to support you.
