Thriving Together: edamama’s Guide to Your Fourth Trimester

Thursday, June 27, 2024

While many think pregnancy only consists of three trimesters, childbirth marks the beginning of what is commonly called the fourth trimester. This period is when your newborn adapts to the world outside the womb, and you face new changes and experiences together.

We understand that becoming a mama is a beautiful, yet challenging journey. We are here to support you through every step, especially during the fourth trimester. This special time after birth is crucial for both you and your baby.

At edamama, we believe that when you’re healthy, you can better care for your baby, your partner, and especially, yourself. Don’t forget that your well-being is just as important as your baby’s.

What to Expect During Your Fourth Trimester
During this time, you’ll experience physical and hormonal changes, recover from childbirth, and cope with sleepless nights and constant worries about your baby. Meanwhile, your baby will need continuous feeding, soothing, and help adjusting to new sleeping patterns. Here are five tips to help you thrive:

Focus on Recovery and Accept Help: Your health is the best gift to your family. Let your partner take care of chores like washing baby clothes and bottles and consider hiring a cleaner or arranging family help. Don’t hesitate to ask for support—you deserve it.

Plan Meals Ahead: Cooking can be tough. Plan your meals with your partner, cook and store food, or try meal delivery services. Find what works best for you before your baby arrives.

Establish a Sleep Schedule: Newborns have unpredictable sleep patterns. Talk to your partner about ensuring you get some uninterrupted sleep. Consider hiring a night nurse if possible.

Create a Comfortable Feeding Space: Set up a cozy feeding corner with a comfy chair, snacks,
water, and essential tools like nipple cream. This will make feeding times easier and more

Prepare for Nesting: Gather all the essentials for both your baby and yourself. Invest in comfortable, breastfeeding-friendly outfits, iced napkins, a peri rinse bottle, a postpartum binder, nursing bras, pillows, adult diapers, and more.
