Postpartum Affirmations


Dear mama with a fresh baby,


Repeat after me...


I do not need to please people to meet my newborn


I do not need to host people over


I can ask for help when I need it


My house can be messy


I don't need to look good for anyone

I need to focus on FEELING good for myself, and my baby


I don't need to rush my workout routine back


I can dress in comfortable loungewear and robes


My uterus takes weeks to shrink


My body needs to store fat to breastfeed


I need to nourish my body to be healthy and heal right


I am not crazy, my hormones are fluctuating


My old clothes will take a while to fit again


My newborn doesn't need to dress in cute clothes every day


My friends may not relate, understand or help, but I can find a new community of woman who can


I can hold my baby through naps, I am not spoiling my baby


I can boost my oxytocin levels with closeness to my baby


I can accept the new temporarily slow days with no schedule


I can follow my intuition, I can do things my way


I can sleep in with my baby to make up for the frequent night wakes


I can take advantage of my baby sleeping all day to take little naps or lay low


I can be grateful for my body and allow it time to heal


I can embrace not knowing what I am doing


I can go with the flow and learn along the way


I can stay away from guides, my baby and I are unique


I can release expectations


I can choose to make good memories out of this stage


I can enjoy this temporarily stage.
