Re: Unsupported post-partum?

DDC March...

We only have one grandparent willing to help us after a birth and sometimes she is more WORK then help! She also has a job so usually she will help for a half day or only one full day at a time. Here is how I survived after the birth of my twins with very little help.

- freezer meals stocked up that could be thrown into a crock pot or oven (I didn't do enough of this with the twins so this time I am going to do a month's worth)

- I had a nanny come and give me rest time. She would take the babies for me and let me sleep or shower then bring them when they needed to nurse. I did that about twice a week for a couple hours at a time.

- House cleaner. This time I am putting a house cleaner on our registry for the shower. I will have them come before the birth and after the birth.

I hope this helps! Best wishes mama
