  • Winwyn Marquez recently took to Instagram to share her experiences and realizations one week after she gave birth, in late April 2022. She and her partner are first-time parents to a baby girl they've named Luna Teresita Ryn. (Winwyn's Christian name is Teresita Ssen.)

    The actress and beauty pageant queen shared a photo of her "1 week postpartum checkup," with Baby Luna in tow, and said in the caption, "My doctor checked my sutures dahil I was in a bit of pain (normal delivery ako) but nothing serious naman additional meds lang and hopefully mag heal na agad."

    She added, "Luna also got checked and healthy baby siya."

    The new mom then described how she's been doing: "I'm tired, no proper sleep, boobs are sore from breastfeeding, my body hurts, yung sugat masakit, deadma sa itsura and adjusting uli sa madaming bagong bagay."

    She pointed out, though, "Thank God for Luna's daddy kasi he has been taking care of me while I take care of our baby."

    Winwyn went on enumerating how she's getting support from her partner: "He makes sure maka nap ako kahit konti and siya gagawa ng need gawin from palit diapers, hugas ng mga pang pump and ibang bottles lalo na pag madaling araw, fixing our food, etc..."

    In other words: "Mini-make sure niya we have what we need lalo na sobrang nag aadjust ako sa lahat and nahihirapan ng konti."

    Her conclusion: "Kahit pagod kaming 2 makita lang namin si Luna na maayos, worth it lahat ng pagod!! Ngiti at saya padin ang kapalit."


    Postpartum care and recovery tips

    After giving birth, get ready for more changes—physically, emotionally, even mentally. To help you deal with those changes, here's a list of what you can do:

    Get some rest

    For instance, sleep when baby is asleep. This is more doable if you place baby’s bed near yours. So that when he or she wakes up in the middle of the night, you won’t have to waste time walking to a separate room to feed him or her.

    Eat healthy

    Opt for whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and protein. Increase your intake of fluids, chiefly water, milk, and fruit juices, especially if you're breastfeeding. On other hand, cut back on beverages with caffeine and refined sugar.

    Exercise (when the doctor says so)

    You can start by moving around the house doing light chores, then you can do some light exercises after giving birth. You can do walking and gentle yoga until you're ready to do jump rope and Zumba.

    Enlist your family's help

    As your body and mind are still recovering from pregnancy and eventual childbirth, you can't always rely on your own strength. You need the support of your husband or partner, as well as family members and other reliable people. Just let them know what you need and how.

    Seek treatment

    Many new moms experience feeling down at times and having the usual baby blues syndrome. But there are also some who experience postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis.

    Read here on why you need to have a postpartum care plan.
