Postpartum isn’t easy which is why it’s often called the fourth trimester. There is no instant SnapBack for most of us, our hormones are trying to figure out what’s going on, our loved ones are trying to figure out what’s going on. I’m still trying to figure out what’s going on. Half the time most moms know they need help they just don’t know what they need help with (I am including myself in this). So this holiday season be courteous and understanding. A new mom may be difficult and overly sensitive due to lack of sleep, energy, depression etc. Let’s just take the pressure off this season and remember that if we’re together, it’s because we’re family. The holidays should be a safe place not a war zone.
