New Mother, New You: How Giving Birth Changes You For The Better

Life changes in so many different ways when your baby arrives. And that includes your outlook

The expression on every mothers face as she holds her new baby says it all.

It says: lsquo;I did this! I made this! And shes right. An experience that nothing youve done before will compare to. And, putting the cheesy clicheacute; of mothers love to the side ndash; its true.

Before your baby arrives, its easy to worry your mothering urge wont kick in. But this is the time to trust your instincts. As soon as you give birth, neurological changes take place, designed to make you a better mother.

Its as if the act of birth flicks a switch from you being the focus to your baby now taking centre stage.

Giving birth can produce a positive mental shift for life, too. Having done something so miraculous, you may feel empowered and unstoppable.

Whether its setting up that business idea, speaking up in meetings or asking people to make room for your buggy on a busy train, your confidence will grow.

lsquo;Youve created life and been through this amazing birth experience, so you may feel braver, as if you can deal with anything, says Mia.

If youve always been a worrier, birth and motherhood can make you calmer, too.

Youre very likely to notice you dont sweat the small stuff quite as much

Although a baby can bring some new anxieties and raise your awareness of potential dangers, youre very likely to notice you dont sweat the small stuff quite as much.

lsquo;Use having a baby to put everything into perspective, and you may find you no longer worry about things that used to bother you, says Mia.

After all, youve crossed the greatest physical and mental barrier there is and youre still standing. You can handle anything.

If youve always been hung up about your bodys physical shortcomings, be it your shape or hair type, use birth as an opportunity for a mental body image makeover.

lsquo;Many women find they appreciate their body for being able to grow, give birth to and feed a baby, says midwife, Mervi Jokinen. lsquo;Giving birth can take the focus away from how your body looks, and put it more onto what it can do.

While bonding with your baby will be your priority, the post-baby rush of endorphins is a great time to give the relationship with your partner a boost, too.

lsquo;He can feel in awe of you having given birth, and hold you in a new esteem afterwards, says Mia.

Youre likely to form a stronger, united bond, having shared the experience of bringing a new person into the world, and youll probably feel closer as a result. Even if endless sleepless nights spirit away this closeness, try to find ways to hold onto it, whether its talking about the birth or remaining physical with each other.

lsquo;This isnt just about having sex, but finding different ways to stay intimate, says Mervi.

Your new perspective on just what it means to have a baby can have a lasting effect on another important person in your life ndash; your mum. After all, she brought you into the world in the same way, and its as if you see her properly for the first time ever.

lsquo;It opens up a world you may not have appreciated or understood before, says Mia. Use it to connect with your mum in a new way, and gain an insight into why she does those things that can wind you up or you don’t understand.

And perhaps the most surprising change for new mums? The act of giving birth often seems to elicit a sudden, deep spiritual connection with other mothers.

Youve gone through the same life-affirming process and are now a fully paid-up member of this secret club called motherhood, and friendships may alter as a result.

You might not see as much of some of your non-mum friends in the early months of your babys life, but feel a greater bond with friends who have children, as you now have something in common.

Birth is a powerful and intimate experience only you and other mothers know about. Now its time to make the most of it.
