Soulside Team

February is a month to celebrate and cherish 'love', and the love between a mom and her baby is one of the many forms of love. The feeling when you hold your baby, the feeling when your baby comes home is something all the mamas have felt. But, what about the early motherhood period? What about the feeling of anxiousness and overwhelm?

This February, we want to remind all the mamas that self love is equally important as the love they have for their babies. To help you cope and prioritize yourself we have made a blog with all the self-care tips. This will help you cope with postpartum depression and anxiety and also might help prevent it from happening.

Here are Some Ways that Self-Care can be Beneficial for New Moms:

1. Reducing stress and anxiety:

You can do self-care activities like yoga, hot bath or deep breathing exercises. These might help you relax for a bit and cope with your emotional health.

2. Physical health is as important as your mental health:

Getting exercises and maintaining a proper diet might help you get a better physical health and also mental health. Your physical health is as important as your mental health and to be honest, both are interrelated with each other.

3. Getting Emotional Support:

Meeting other moms and making new friends might help. Also, professional help and support groups are always available. Having a support system and connecting with other moms and sharing experiences will make you feel less alone in this rollercoaster ride.

4. Getting in tune with yourself

Self-care can not only help a mama cope with mental health issues but might also help prevent any from happening. Remember, your family needs a happy and healthy mom by their side.

Spend quality time with your partner and engage in activities you both enjoy. Whether it's cooking together, going on hikes, or watching your favorite shows, nurturing your relationship can provide emotional support and strengthen your bond as parents.

3.Take Care of Your Physical Health

We forget how important it is to take care of your physical health too while transitioning motherhood. Simple chores like eating food, getting enough sleep play an important role in your mental health. Get your exercise, go on walks, eat a balanced diet, get your beauty sleep. Following these might help you improve your overall mental and emotional help.

4. Declutter Your Life and Your Home

Are you a hoarder or a mama who simply doesn't have time? You need to organize your baby's supplies, and create an arrangement that will help you manage household chores more efficiently.

5. Reflect on your journey as a mom

It's also important to get in touch with your emotions. How? You can do that by writing a journal(we highly recommend) or simply by talking to your loved one.  Give yourself some grace on how far you've come and how far you can go.

6. Empower Yourself with Knowledge

Continue learning and expanding your knowledge as a new mom. Read books, join virtual communities, and seek out support and help if needed. Doing these will help you gain more confidence in yourself and help you navigate this transition.

7. Be Kind to Yourself

Finally, remember to be kind to yourself. Motherhood is a challenging yet rewarding journey, and it's important to show yourself compassion and grace as you navigate this new chapter.


Motherhood is a journey filled with both challenges and joys. If you are a New mom, you need to be kind to yourself, focus on what you can control, and celebrate small victories. Remember that every hard moment doesn't define you or your life.

As your children grow, embrace each stage, knowing that challenges and joys are temporary. Prioritize self-care, seek support when needed, and trust your instincts as a mother. Avoid comparing yourself to others, as every motherhood journey is unique.

In summary, focus on your self-care, celebrate small wins, set realistic expectations, and trust your instincts as a mom. By doing so, you can create a happy life for you and your family.
