Recently gave birth? Get out of the house as much as possible. Life doesn’t go according to plan. A week after giving birth to Bella, my husband went out of town for work for nearly 3 weeks. Then again a few months later for 3 months!! I was alone & had to take care of myself, an 8 year old & a newborn. The circumstances could have easily brought on postpartum depression or anxiety. With all our health & safety in mind, I’d plan ways to get out of the house. I’d put on my workout shoes, comfortable clothes, bundle Bella up & drop Semira at school. Then I’d sit in the park & pray out loud. Moms, instead of suffering in whatever circumstance you’re dealing with after having a new baby, be proactive, get creative with your time & just talk to God about it. He loves you & will take care of you. God will send family & friends your way. In my case, He didn’t send people but He did send His Spirit. He spoke sweetly to me daily. He encouraged me. He comforted me. He didn’t take me out of the uncomfortable circumstance but loved me through it. It’s part of my story. My journey. Embrace yours.
