FAQs

Let's look at exactly what's inside your freebie.

  • How can I prepare for the postpartum period?

    The transition to parenthood is a period of immense joy and challenge. Discovering Motherhood is your survival guide and features a series of interviews with perinatal experts who discuss a range of experiences following the birth of a child; including mental health, how to care for your baby, getting support from family and friends and breastfeeding advice from lactation consultants. Listen before you give birth so you feel prepared for one of the greatest transitions in life – birth to parenthood.

  • What do I need to know as I transition to parenthood?

    There’s a lot of health and parenting information online and often lots of unsolicited advice from friends and family. As you navigate the postpartum period and learn to care for your baby, trusted information is essential. You need to know the basics about healing after birth, the importance of skin to skin, what to expect from baby sleep cycles, breastfeeding, mental health and postpartum depression so you can enter parenthood with confidence and awareness. Postpartum preparation is just as important as birth preparation.

  • How can I look after my mental health and stay aware of postpartum depression?

    The significant hormonal and identity shifts after pregnancy and birth as you transition to parenthood can affect your mental health. The best way to care for yourself is to check in every day. Ask yourself: how am I feeling? Talk to your partner or your friends and family about how you’re feeling. If periods of sadness, worry, anxiety or feeling down last more than two weeks or start to affect your everyday life, it’s best to reach out for professional support because you may have postpartum depression. There’s a module in Discovering Motherhood that covers mental health in the postpartum period and what to do if you think you may have postpartum depression.
