Eat Well to Manage Post Partum Blues - sharadi
Sometimes it is a lot less stressful to manage on your own since you don’t have to worry about other factors such as your mom’s health when here, the excessive work load on her etc. For the first month postpartum you mainly need a lot of sleep and healthy non-spicy food. you could make a few daals and bland veggies a few days prior to your due date and stock them up. you could also buy/ make some ladoos and sweets with nuts that are handy so you can munch on them between meals.
