Here are a few pointers and tips for all the new mothers, and mothers of newborns in Saudi Arabia.
Don’t listen to all advice by everyone
The first tip we give to a new mother is not to listen to everyone. You are going to get to a large dose of unwanted advice from everyone in your friends, family members and colleagues. You should hear all the advice but only listen to your pediatrician.
Get yourself familiarized with pediatricians
There are many pediatricians in every hospital and many hospitals around the city. The second tip for the new mother is to make sure you get feedback from your peers to know about the best pediatricians around the area you live in. Moreover, you should also know at least a couple of hospitals where pediatricians are available 24/7 in an emergency.
A friendly relationship with your pediatrician
Another important tip is to be open with your pediatrician. You will be discussing issues related to motherhood and feeding your child to the doctor, you need to be completely open and honest with them, and not hide any oddities or any other sorts of facts.
You may want to get your husband involved with the proceedings with the doctors as well as other health-related issues, as he should be fully aware of your health.
Give yourself time to recover
You personally may not be able to fulfill some of your duties and responsibilities towards the husband. If you have delivered your child through the conventional method, it would take you lesser time to recover as compared to the C-section.
Contractions after the childbirth
You may wake up one day and find that you are having similar contractions such as which you felt during your delivery or close to your delivery. You might wonder what is this? It is your uterus shrinking back to its original size. After enduring it for around an hour, it will usually subside, or you can ask your gynecologist for a pill.
