I read a post on Instagram recently that said “society expects women to work like they don’t have children, and raise their children like they don’t work”, and although it sounds completely ridiculous, it is the truth for so many mums. The expectations that are put onto women when they become mothers are often nothing short of crazy, and one thing that seems to get people talking is the idea that mums need to care for themselves. After nine months of growing a tiny human inside her own body, a mother is, in so many cases, expected to step back and quietly fall into the last place in the priority line as soon as the baby is born. In generations gone by, this was widely accepted, and it was just what mothers did. I know I personally have experienced this opinion within my own family, and it has been the cause of significant disagreements! However, in this day and age where people are so actively trying to break the stigma around mental health issues, and there are more conversations happening than ever before about how people can be supported in the workplace, the one that seems to be missing is how mums can be encouraged in the most critical role they will ever have - motherhood. So what can be done to support our mums? How can we ensure that the mums we know and love get their own needs met? This is something I have been working on myself for quite a long time now so that I will share with you my top 10 self-care ideas for mums.
