24 hours left and two or three hours. Mother is sitting in the same way with three months in the lap. In the meantime, at least one of them took courage to take baby in the lap. As soon as he was crying, he returned to his mother’s lap. Mother’s work, mother will do it. Her responsibility is to take care of the child. But this mother herself needs care. Who is taking it?
Every day, every time doing such a lot of work, mother forget to take care for herself, love herself. Slowly lost their likes and dislikes. Due to depression, the mother cannot fit herself physically. There is a lot of changes before and after childbirth. Many mothers are said to say that they do not take photos with the child due to fatness. But whatever you are in, you are the most trusted place to your baby. And maternal love is always beautiful.
Mentally Healthy Mother
Many mothers are sick after giving birth to a child. If the food and the rest is correct then they get better again. After a child, the life-style of a mother become changed. In the first few months, the time passes through tension and anxiety. As the children grow up, they can come back a little bit in the previous life. To manage herself, to manage the baby, to take care of the family depends on mother. The working mother has more pressure. Lucky those, who get support from the family. Awake at night, to eat irregularly are very common things. Even on that day, if there is no one around, she cannot go to bathroom. She has to feed breast milk to her baby for the whole day, but there is not time to make a glass of milk for herself. In many of these, thoughts come to many people-life is ending, and there is nothing to do.
Many times people avoid family or neighbors when they hear such words from a new mother. Be aware of this. Due to lack of sleep, depression of hormone, and without help of family, the mother becomes depressed. This time of depression should be handled very carefully. It is necessary to bring Mother back to positive thoughts. Sultana Algin, associate professor of psychiatry department of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, said, “It is necessary for the mother to be mentally and physically fit. Otherwise, emotional bonding does not develop with the child. This will result in the improper mental development of the child at a later time. Because of postpartum depression the mother does not eat properly, does not sleep, and does not take care of herself and her baby. At that time anger and anxiety were also born to near and dears.
If the mother is annoyed, irritated, disturbed, crying, and not paying attention to the child, if this happen constantly, the mother would be depressed. Take the help of expert if needed. Sultana Algin believes that there should be a mental health center for those mother in hospitals, department of gynecologists and obstetrics, or vaccination centers. But husband’s role is very important at this time. All needs to be done to observe the child, and should enjoy this from the seats of the audience. Take the leave from the job if necessary. Wake up in the night then the mother will be able to sleep for some time.
If the mother is employed then she can return to the work place after the maternity leave, so be aware of that everyone in the family. If she gets help, mother will not fall into insecurity. The husband should take care of himself, maintain a healthy relationship with his wife. No negligence can be expressed. If the mother is free of stress, she will be able to feed the baby properly. Leave the baby for some time with someone else. Or take a cup of tea from a cafe in front of the house. If the mother is away from the child for some time, then the dependence of the child on mother will be reduced. When the baby sleeps, take care of yourself. Do nothing else at least comb the hair.
At first physical fitness
Mothers will have to eat more because of feeding a newborn baby. The wrong idea. After being a baby, mother should eat nutritious food in a standard quantity. During pregnancy, whose weight increases by more than 13 kgs, the next time if you have the amount of food, you can reduce the weight. Tamanna Chowdhury, chief physician of Apollo Hospitals Dhaka, said, “Mothers should be brought in routine eating. Snack in the morning. Then it will be eaten after two hours every day. There is no need to eat more calories for milk. Rather, it is necessary to drink enough water. Drink two liters of water for each day, one more liter of water for the baby. ‘
Gradually start taking care of yourself. Start walking within 10-15 minutes in the house. Walk up to 30-45 minutes. Do it twice if not possible together. There are some exercises, which can benefit you in the first three months. The body’s throat swabs will decrease, the stomach will also decrease gradually.
Rowshan Ara Begum, an Honorary Professor at Holy Family Hospital, said, “As a mother comes to change after the child birth, there is a change in mind also. At the same time both estrogen and progesterone hormones decreased. Mother needs two hours of sleep at day, eight hours sleep at night. Lifting a bucket of water, washing a bucket cloth – keep them closed for a while. Heavy works cannot be done at least for three months. If the mother rests, she will recover soon. ‘
Diet is not something negative. Tamanna Chowdhury, however, said that Protein Diet, Military Diet, GM Diet is bad for everyone. He gave a guide to the new food for the new mothers. Milk, eggs are essential in every day. It is better to eat fish or meat in two times a day, this will reduce Iron deficiency. Protein that helps in curing the parts of the cut area. Those who were overly overwhelmed or who were at risk during pregnancy, had high blood pressure or diarrhea-they used to eat roti/chapati at night. After feeding the baby, become very hungry. You can eat an apple or two tablespoon of instant yogurt. You can eat four or five almond nuts or two meals biscuits, sagudana and dates. If you want to reduce weight, reduce the weight of one kg every two weeks in the first three months. You can reduce one kg per week in the next three months. Besides, you can eat cereals, oats and sagudana in small amounts. Skip sugar. Eat seasonal vegetables and fruits.
Iron and calcium have been eaten since pregnancy. But there is a lack of vitamin D before and after the birth of baby. Calcium tablets will work only when vitamin D will be eaten together. The main reason for hair loss, bone pain, back pain, headache is one of the reasons why this vitamin lacks. Persona Health’s Chief Instructor Farzana Khanam said, if you do not have any physical problem, you will be able to join the gym after three months of childbirth. Yoga can also be done in normal delivery. If you cannot join the gym, start the exercise with empty hands at home. But whatever exercises, do it according to the expert’s advice.
It’s not like that a mother has to wear Maxi all time after a child birth. During this time, designer Tahsina Shaheen thinks that a woman needs the most comfortable clothes in life. She suggested to choose cotton or linen clothing. There is a need to feed the baby again and again. If you put the chain on both sides, you will get comfort while breastfeeding your baby. Get rid of the clothes offered in a little hinged cot in front of the dress. In the home, you can wear a Maxi gown cut dress. When the guest arrives, you will be able to apply a long koti.
You had a style of your own. To suit herself, she wore a beautiful dress. It’s not all that needs to be omitted because of being a mother. Rather, take a bit of breath again and make yourself decorate. Do your own good work. Because, if you are not good, you cannot care your child too. Surrounded by joy, the children will also be happy.
