Your bundle of joy is here! But your job is not over yet.
Now it’s important that you:
- Help the new mom relax. She may still benefit from back rubs, and she’ll still be feeling some pain.
- Ask her what she’d like to do next -- start calling people or just sleep?
- Enjoy the moment! Except for feeding and loving your baby, this is a time to rest. There’s plenty of time later to think about the last 18 hours and the next 18 years.
