In these early first months, newborns sleep in many short cycles and never sleep through the night. Newborns spend their days and nights moving through six states of consciousness and each cycle runs about 60-90 minutes long.
I loved being pregnant. I had dreamt being bring pregnant every since I was a little girl. I wanted to be a mother. I wanted to carry, hold, and nurse a newborn. So when the time came and I was pregnant I loved feeling curvy, feminine, and motherly. I walked everywhere, I gardened, and I nurtured myself. I enjoyed showing off my form and I dreamed of my birth. Everything I did was focused on the birth, from childbirth classes, prenatal yoga, and infant CPR. Everything was roses and perfection
Debriefing after any birth is critical piece in finding closure and helps couples to move forward in to parenthood.
