You may have written a birth plan already, but have you planned for what happens when you take the baby home?
Expectant mothers spend time planning for childbirth and getting the nursery ready but forget about the postpartum period. The truth is that preparing for postpartum is even more important than a birth plan.
Many new mums are shocked by the challenges of the first few weeks, and they wished they had prepared better. The below questions are crucial, but often overlooked:
♦ Who are your postpartum care providers and what’s their contact info?
♦Who can help you in an emergency?
♦Who is doing the household chores?
♦Who is providing you with nutritious meals so that you can rest and recover?
You can spare yourself a lot of unnecessary stress if you have the answers to these questions ready well before you need them.
