Myth: On Tishah B’Av we need to be comfortable and not worry about how we look.
Truth: We do still need to look and feel healthy.
Myth: After you’ve had the baby, you need to focus on the baby’s health and needs.
Truth: You must take care of your own health too.
Mazal tov! You had your baby and you’re done with pregnancy. The baby is the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen but then it starts crying the minute you try to rest. You’re exhausted and overwhelmed but also elated and loving your baby. All of this sounds confusing. It is. It’s normal. So don’t worry. What’s not good is if you forget about yourself.
