So often we get caught up in birth planning that we forget to plan for our postpartum experience... and find ourselves side blinded by all the things that we never thought about.
A dear friend and doula client, who was preparing for the birth of her 2nd child, had the idea of writing a ''Postpartum Plan'' in addition to her ''Birth Plan'' and graciously gave me permission to share it. Please, feel free to copy and paste, and use as your own.
From the day I got pregnant with my son, I was floating on cloud nine and seeing the world through rose colored glasses. I had zero morning sickness (don’t worry, I made up for it with my daughter), gained minimal weight, maintained a healthy and active pregnancy and worked out, ate all of the right things, avoided all of the wrong things and took care of myself. I felt great, both physically and mentally, and even though some blood pressure spikes brought my baby boy to me a week earlier than planned, we welcomed him into the world with open arms and love in our hearts.
