Messages for New Moms

Note to new mom: Focus on the present. I still need to hear this, almost daily. / Print from The Wheatfield by Katie Daisy

When you’re pregnant with your first baby, other moms–old and young–tell you all sorts of things about what to expect and how life will change, and how babies work and how you’ll feel about it.

Wanting to be well-informed and ready for whatever life with a baby was going to bring, I soaked it all in. And I learned something: At least a little bit of what everyone told me was true.

In learning to be a mom, I found that I needed lots of words of encouragement. Or sometimes just a good dose of perspective. Or simply the knowledge that somebody out there knew how I was feeling, or that what I was doing was a beautiful work.

On that note, here are a handful of messages that I think can do a new mom good. Some days are good, and some days are not so good. But most days, chances are you’ll need to hear (or feel) something like this:
