Take Time to Relax (Before and After Your Baby Arrives)

Taking 20 - 30 minutes at least once a day to spend alone with your baby in a relaxed environment will not only bring you and baby closer, but will also help to relieve some of the day-to-day stress that we all feel during these transitional times.

Feeling separated from your partner?

As our belly grows with the developing baby, many pregnant women tend to forget to take the time to stay connected with their partners. Many soon-to-be dads have said, "She just isn't there anymore. I don't know how to talk to her." By the same token, the separation can continue after the baby is born with so many family role adjustments to make while your body is still recovering from the marathon of birth.

Planning special evenings with your partner can help to bring you both closer, not only as a couple, but also as parents. You might plan:

  • A walk in the moonlight
  • A moment spent listening to your favorite music
  • A candlelight dinner
  • A double massage (where you each get one)

Taking the time to remember why you fell in love with each other will only bring the two of you closer and help you ease into becoming a family.

Remember, take the time you need to relax and regain your perspective of the changes happening in all your lives. The more relaxed you are with the changes, the more relaxed your baby,and you and your partner will be.
