Like new babies, mums need care and support. ‘You can’t pour tea from an empty pot’ says Anewmum CEO, and mother of two girls, Marian Kennedy. ‘You need to take care of yourself too’.

Just like new babies, new mums need care and support. “You can’t pour tea from an empty kettle,” says anewmum CEO, Marian Kennedy. “You need to take care of yourself too.”
Self-care tends to fall by the wayside once a baby is born and new mums often neglect their own physical and mental wellness when it counts most.
According to anewmum’s experts, physical and mental wellness are determined by five basic postpartum needs:
– emotional care & comfort
– physical care & comfort
– time & energy
They suggest three kinds of support for overall wellness:
