Preparing for Postpartum: What You Can Do Before Giving Birth

Feb. 13, 2023

This week on The Mommy Labor Nurse Podcast I'm doing an episode all about postpartum prep!

As a labor and delivery nurse, I am ALL about getting you prepared for birth. But in my opinion, preparing for birth ALSO means preparing for postpartum.

Because when it’s all said and done, you’re going to have a newborn to take care of, and YOU are going to be an entirely new person as well.

Inside of today's episode, we’re going to unpack what you can do during pregnancy to prepare for postpartum including education, supplies, mindset tips, and more.

Getting educated for birth is so, so important, but truly, I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t make sure you were ready for postpartum too.

Not sure how to care for yourself down there after birth?

Access our FREE Postpartum Essentials Checklist to know you’ve got what you need to feel clean and comfortable while you’re healing from birth.
