Ask any mother about her journey, and probably the answer you will get from most moms is that – ‘Motherhood is not easy’. While every woman rejoices the moment she realises she is going to be a mother, she also gets paranoid thinking about her life after the baby.This is because motherhood brings with its share of ups and downs which include sleepless nights, messy house, soiled diapers and what not. A new baby in the house is an additional responsibility and many new mothers find it difficult to settle into their new routine. Many women often see it as an end, that now their lives would be confined to one room only, wherein they will just be preoccupied with the little one, having little or no time for themselves.
But motherhood is not the end, rather it is the beginning of a new chapter in a woman’s life. Of course, it does take some time away from you, but all in a good sense.
Motherhood is often messy, it is not the same as seen in postcards.It is an eventful and glorious chapter in a woman’s life. We cannot have flawless children and an easy life.
Here are some tips which are sure to help you embrace motherhood:
1. Acceptance – Yes, this is the very first step in embracing motherhood. Accept that you are a mother now. Things will not be entirely same as they used to be before. While it might seem to be a little difficult initially, but the new activities and routine will seamlessly integrate and become the new norm.
