Coleen Garcia gave an honest and inspiring interview on “I Feel U” about being a first-time mother.
KAMI learned that Coleen admitted to facing a lot of difficulties after giving birth to her baby boy, Amari.
She said that she has not slept a whole night since giving birth last September and that breastfeeding has been difficult because she has to eat every two hours to nourish herself.
"From the day na nanganak ako, wala pa akong buong tulog…
“May mga nag-warn na sa akin na mahirap ang postpartum, mahirap ang breastfeeding, 'yung recovery and everything. Ang hindi ko lang naisip is 'yung ipagsasabay sabay mo lahat. I am trying to learn how to breastfeed pero at the same time, nagre-recover din ako.
“Nung una talaga, nanibago ako because of the diet also na every two hours, kailangan talaga kumakain. Kasi breastmilk stays the same, nutritious talaga no matter what. Pero kapag kulang, kinukuha talaga from my nutrition. So ako 'yung parang nanghihina, ako 'yung nakukulangan sa nutrition. I always have to be eating and everything. Totoo 'yung sinasabi din nila na your body is no longer yours,” Coleen said.
Furthermore, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic made her pregnancy and current life with her baby extra difficult.
“Our journey is quite unique kasi this all happened while we are on lockdown. It’s still hard to imagine what normal life is going to be like. Kasi kahit naman nung buntis ako, naka-lockdown na. It’s hard to be imagine what it will be like when it is back to work, when I start going out again," she shared.
However, Coleen said that these difficulties will not stop her from pushing through and doing her best for her beloved son.
