Five empowering phrases for new mamas
Being a mother is easy – said no mother ever! It’s one of the more challenging life experiences; we gain priceless rewards but also bear much responsibility. Here are five phrases to help empower you on your journey to and through motherhood.
1) You are enough, mama
It’s true, you are all your baby needs, and all they want. You’re keeping them fed, safe, warm, clean and loved just by being you right now. The fact that you’re always thinking about your child, and are taking steps to ensure their safety and security, also matters. Check out Cigna’s life insurance packages which can be tailored to your stage in life. Be kind to yourself mama - you’re definitely enough!
2) You’re doing it right – for you
There never was a right way to parent - and there never will be! What there is though, is the right way to parent for you. Every parent has different beliefs, values and ideas that make it impossible for there to ever be just one correct way. If your child is safe, loved and cared for, that is awesome!
3) It’s okay to ask for help – many times
It’s not a sign of weakness - it’s actually a sign of strength. To acknowledge you need help means you’re aware of what you and your baby need, and you want to make sure those needs are met. Asking for help should be commended and more mothers should feel confident to do so. Have you sorted out your life insurance? Getting life insurance is a way of acknowledging you may need help in the future. Cigna Life Insurance is simple and affordable and will help give you peace of mind.
4) You will make it through
It feels like you won’t make it through this overwhelming season, but the truth is, you will. And after you get through it, things might not feel so bad. You’ll regain your strength and find a new normal - with new priorities, a new focus and new challenges. But you will make it through.
5) You’re not alone
Sisters shouldn’t be doing it for themselves – we need our friends to help us keep things real. To listen, and give hugs when things are tough (and to tell us it will be okay). To visit and bring sympathy, patience, kindness - and something delicious-but-healthy!
