New Mama Deck for first time moms eases the transition to motherhood and supports mental health and wellbeing.

Becoming a mom is one of the most beautiful things any woman experiences. You watch a brand-new life come into the world. Your baby! Your world! 

As a new mother, you feel full of possibility. You hang on every sound your new baby makes as you stare at this little miracle that is yours. You may, too, feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Many women are afraid or embarrassed to admit to these feelings. Social media often portrays the perfect mom in unrealistic terms. 

After bringing baby home from the hospital and life returns to a “new normal,” you can very often feel a shift in your energy. There is little time left for you in between changing diapers, feedings, laundry, and tummy time. For this reason, one important question new moms often ask themselves is "Where did the ME time go?" And how do I meet and juggle all these new demands on my time? This is especially true for first time moms.

Being a first time mom is challenging, considering new routines that are different from your life prior to baby. These challenges might include reevaluating career plans. They might also include accepting that household tasks may take time to accomplish. Remember, your life goes from taking care of yourself to taking care of a newborn and yourself. The demands are completely different. Toss in sleepless nights, dirty diapers, spit up milk after an outfit change, and the to-do list gets exhausting. The last thing you want from anyone is unsolicited advice about how to manage it all. No, thank you. “I got this,” you think to yourself. And you do! But a few tips and tricks wouldn't hurt, either. For this reason, we created the New Mama Deck. It provides advice for new moms without someone looking over her shoulder. 

Being a new mom takes time and patience with yourself.

Once you settle into your routine and the groove of this new mama role, you might notice that something is lacking. What’s lacking, for many new mothers, is personal time and space. The days blur together, and the nights feel eternal. It might be hard to feel like yourself again when time you once took for granted is no longer yours. Every thought revolves around your baby’s well-being and happiness. Yours falls to the wayside.

These feelings can be hard to process. And while you’re overwhelmed with joy about the arrival of your newborn, it’s also true that you are, most likely, tired and filled with angst. This time of life is full of ups and downs and everything in between. While working through this new mom role, remember to be gentle with yourself as you navigate motherhood. And try to learn from others who have become new moms before you.

The New Mama Deck is a "Women's Circle" in a Box

Think of the New Mama Deck as a "Women's Circle" in a box. It is designed by women who've set an intention to support one another through this critical change and transition period. The New Mama Deck encourages women to be their most authentic selves. It's made and designed by experienced moms who offer advice in the form of prompt cards. This advice is good for a mom's mental health, as well.

Our New Mama Deck offers sound advice and wisdom (from a distance and without pressure or judgment) and tips and tricks to make this phase of life a little easier. Learn from others who have done this before you.

New Mama Deck prompt cards are designed with love to support and guide new moms into this emerging phase of life with a little one. They remind new mamas that this rollercoaster ride is completely normal. It's also a great way to learn to ask for help. In addition, the prompts include ways to encourage new dads to take the stress off mama.

Caring Advice for New Moms

We know you may feel overcome with joy and love one minute, and twenty minutes later be overwhelmed with doubt and anxiety. That’s why our New Mama Deck is specifically designed to be easy – NOT overwhelming. It’s not a book you have to read, or another thing on your long list of chores. It’s a collection of crowd-sourced new mom tips and tricks that you won’t have to learn on your own. And, most importantly, the prompts are focused on you.

Becoming a mother presents so many challenges, especially when it comes to taking care of yourself. New Mama Deck reminds you that you can’t pour from an empty cup. In other words, you need to fill yourself up with little things that make your life feel slightly less demanding while caring for a newborn. We've included a few professional tips that many moms have learned the hard way. These tips are tried-and-true methods to help you feel more comfortable in your role as a new mom. We also offer reminders to reconnect to yourself and your former life so that you feel centered and whole.

To use, shuffle the New Mama Deck, pull a card from the deck of 52 boxed prompts, and complete the prompt card. It's that simple! We recommend pulling a card 3-4 times per week to carve out even twenty minutes that lift you up and help you take a deep breath.

A Great Gift for New Moms, New Parents, New Dads

Hack Decks™ are a perfect addition to include with a baby shower gift or send to a new mom once her baby arrives. The decks remind a new mom to take time to care for herself so that her energy and stamina stay high (a relative concept).

New Mama Decks also remind a new mom to ask for help in ways that make a difference. This includes asking for help from family, friends, a spouse, or anyone else who can offer support. Motivational prompts include reminding new moms to text a friend or schedule some alone time. These seemingly small prompts can make a world of difference in a new mama's life and ability to maintain her stamina during difficult days. Prompts remind mom that giving back to herself gives her baby that much more.

Remember, being a mom is hard! Every single day is an accomplishment.

Hack Decks™ are made by women (and wise moms). New mom advice is great for both parents. Here's a fantastic idea: Go through the deck with your partner to open the discussion about your new roles as parents, allocation of time, and tasks you can share.
