This Postpartum Plan gives parents inspiration and practical guidance on how to prepare themselves for postpartum in the first 40 days after birth. It will inspire you to prepare yourself, your partner and the village around you to support your new family. It includes questions to answer, partner talking topics, visualization excerzise, personal assignments such as making your food requirement guidelines and personal postpartum giftlist. The printable 40 day planning sheet is added to help tracking appointments during your first 40 day journey.
This plan will not give you any guarantee that all will go as planned. In the first 40 days, the mother’s system will go through tremendous changes.Your baby, partner and possible siblings will also need this ‘incubation time’ to adjust to a new reality. Planning support well in advance will, however, guarantee that whatever emo- tional, physical and spiritual changes you go through, you will be held and nurtured by your loved ones.
