Have you or anyone you know practiced the 40 days of rest postpartum?
It’s the idea that the postpartum mother must rest during this sacred period of time immediately following birth.
During this time, your only job is to fall in love with your baby and learn to breastfeed.
Many mamas who practice 40 days spend this time in bed, doing skin to skin, eating warm, nutritious food, and keep visitors to a minimum.
I wonder how this would impact new mothers in our society if everyone did this?
