Science says it’s normal for new mothers to be forgetful

Most mothers will agree that they are usually very scattered. It takes a woman who has a lot of help to keep slaying in her appearance, goals, be an attentive mother and still manage to have it all together, don’t you agree?

Motherhood is no walk in the park because you have so much to attend to—dirty socks, birthday parties, favourite meals, individual preferences etc. 

A while ago, I came across a woman on social media who wore a car seat cover, thinking it was a skirt. So many times, I have had my elder sister who has two kids forget to call me back for days, though she promised that she would.

Many mothers may find this disorganization alarming, especially if they are used to being very put together. However, psychologists say that it is perfectly normal for mothers, especially new ones, to be a tad forgetful.

According to their studies, they say 4 things are responsible. The first is the fact that the body is trying to recover from the pain of childbirth so it chooses to forget and along the line, a few other things get lost too. Secondly, due to lactation—the hormones can go haywire—causing some disruption in memory. The third is that it is due to the change in priorities that new mothers have; they have completely dependent humans so they tend to prioritize them above everything else so they forget less important details. Lastly, new mothers forget due to fatigue. It is that simple.

Therefore, if you are worried that you are a shadow of who used to be now that you are a mother, know that it is perfectly normal. With time, you will readjust and get used to it.
