I have been around women listening to their tales about life
after giving birth. They talk about how their bodies change. I mean carrying a
baby for nine months, going through labor, and finally carrying your newborn in
your arms takes a toll on you but it is worth the price.
Some gossip about their friends and neighbors who have

When it comes to chores, avoid multi-tasking. Tackle one task
at a time to prevent overwhelming yourself, which can cause accidents such as
spills and burnt food. When your baby sleeps, take time to rest instead of attending
to chores you have not done yet. Be gentle on yourself. However, it does not
mean you should be lazy. High levels of hygiene are essential when raising a
