Health Tip: New Mom Returning to Work

Share your feelings with others

(HealthDayNews) -- If you've recently returned to work after having a baby, you may feel overwhelmed by guilt and exhaustion.

The Builder's Association of Northern Nevada offers this advice for new moms who work:

  • Talk to other working mothers about their feelings, experiences and tips for adjusting.
  • If you can, ease yourself back into work by starting with fewer hours and working your way up.
  • Cut back on extracurricular activities until you adjust.
  • Negotiate a new schedule with your employer, if possible. Set new work hours, limit travel, and define how early or late you can work.
  • Make every moment with your baby count.
  • Remind yourself that the income you earn helps support your child, and that children of working mothers grow up just fine.
