#28 Caring for Mama
The fourth trimester is a period of time after the birth of the baby that many don't know about. This period of time is technically classed as the 6 weeks after the birth of baby, however as you will learn this period can actually extend for almost a year after birth. During this time the new parents can be under a lot of physical and mental stress. I had the privilege to interview the wonderful Kathleen Murphy from Mama Care Health about the importance of the fourth trimester and care of the new mother.
In a time where the focus is all on the newborn baby, the new parents can often get neglected in care. This is exacerbated by being in a culture where asking for help is often seen as weakness, particularly when we have spent the last decade or so of our lives establishing ourselves as strong, independent people. In this episode we talk about the services Kathleen provides through MamaCare, and how and why we need more focus on the care and support of the mother during this period.
