Pregnant women experience thicker hair, radiant skin, and a cute baby bump, but these pregnancy benefits quickly wear off once the baby is born. Combine that with limited sleep, changing hormones, and a postpartum body, and many people can have a hard time adjusting to their new and changing bodies.

1. Buy the right bra

A woman’s breasts change in size throughout pregnancy, often becoming fuller and more vibrant. After the baby is born, the breasts will continue to grow, especially if she decides to breastfeed. In fact, a woman’s breasts double to triple in size while breastfeeding.

For many, larger breasts are considered a beauty asset, but for nursing mothers, the changing size can be a challenge. Another challenge for nursing mothers includes some pain and sensitivity when breasts become engorged. These two variables can make finding the right bra difficult.

By working with a professional lactation consultant to better understand how your breasts change throughout breastfeeding, you will become more aware of what to expect and gain important information on how to best support your breasts.

A lactation consultant can offer advice on the different nursing bras on the market and have a great understanding of what other moms like. Seeking professional lactation care from an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) in the office or at home can help guide your breastfeeding journey and help with any unexpected obstacles.

An important aspect to consider when choosing the right nursing bra is to make sure your nursing bra does not have underwires, as underwires can hinder the healthy flow of breast milk through the milk ducts.

2. Shop for clothes that fit

Despite the pressure to “bounce back” from pregnancy and childbirth, it’s not realistic. Women’s bodies need time to heal as they continue to nourish and provide for their child(ren). For some, it can be difficult to justify spending money on clothes that fit their current figure.

Even if you plan to get back to your pre-baby weight, your body shape will still change, and getting back to your previous shape will take time. It is important that a person can feel comfortable and beautiful in their clothes, especially with all the other changes and stresses they are going through after the newborn is born.

It’s important to dress your body not as it was in the past, or as it hopes for the future, but as it is now. When you forget about size and instead focus on clothes that fit you, giving your body grace and understanding, you’ll be better able to adapt to the changes your body is going through. Remember, it’s not the size of the clothing that matters, but what looks good and feels comfortable in it.

3. Change up your hair care

During pregnancy, a woman’s hair grows thicker, longer, and thicker. Postpartum, she will continue to experience the beautiful hair she gained during pregnancy. Her hair doesn’t start to change until around the 4th and 5th month postpartum.

It is normal for women to experience massive, unprecedented hair loss postpartum. During pregnancy, pregnant women do not lose as much hair due to hormonal differences. Some people say that the hair loss that occurs in the 5th month is suppressed hair loss.

This is one reason why some women cut their hair short in the first year postpartum. This shorter cut, usually a more straight or layered cut, helps create more body and movement in her hair, helping to offset the look of her thinning hair.

If a short haircut isn’t for you, we recommend treating your hair more delicately with a volumizing product that will help create a fuller look. It’s also important not to wear your hair in a tight hairstyle that pulls on your scalp. Remember, postpartum hair loss is normal and nothing to worry about if you continue to nourish your body with a healthy diet.

in conclusion

Women’s bodies are truly magnificent. They bred humans and were able to nourish them for 2 years both in vivo and in vitro. It is important to appreciate that this is a true miracle and to give your body love and understanding. Just because your body is different doesn’t make it any less beautiful. Embrace change, strive to see the beauty in the moment, and dress accordingly.
