As a new mum, do you find yourself having moments of being slightly more scatterbrained than before pregnancy? Exhale that breath of air you were holding – It’s absolutely normal to feel that way!

“Forgetfulness is a natural part of a woman’s defense mechanism after the pain and rigors of childbirth,” explains gynaecologist Dr. Sharon Phelan of the New Mexico School of Medicine in a Daily Mail article.
