Every person goes through their own recovery period after giving birth. Some people bounce right back and are back to normal in no time, some people have to heal from a c-section, and some people have to deal with healing in different capacities. During my time recovering from giving birth, there were some items that I COULD NOT live without! I am excited to start my countdown of my top 10 FAVORITE postpartum necessities!
Slip On Shoes
These shoes can serve a double purpose for before delivery and after you deliver. Shortly before I gave birth, I was so swollen I could barely get into any shoes other than flip flops. After delivery, I couldn't even get into my flip flops. If you opt for an epidural, your swelling can be even worse due to the fluid they give you. It will take a few days to get all the fluid off, so these shoes are a lifesaver! You want to make sure you get some that don't go between your toes. My feet and toes were so swollen that I couldn't get my feet into my flip flops and these were a lifesaver for me!
Whether you are close to giving birth or have just given birth and are struggling with swelling, these shoes are a perfect fix to make it through those rough days!
Stay tuned as I continue my countdown tomorrow!
