Is it normal for me to want time alone in the first weeks after my baby’s birth?

After the amazing high following the birth of your baby, you’ve probably come back down to earth again fairly quickly. Don’t worry – this is perfectly normal for new mums. It’s partly due to the drop in levels of pregnancy hormones, affecting your mood, and partly because being a new mum can be, well, pretty challenging in the early days.

Trying to establish a feeding routine, learning to understand your baby’s cries and coming to terms with your responsibilities as a parent – all on reduced sleep – are no mean feats, so give yourself a big pat on the back for everything you’ve achieved so far.

Wonderful as your new little bundle is, it’s perfectly understandable if you want a spot of time to yourself at this stage, so you certainly shouldn’t feel guilty.
