Re: Do you have someone stay with you after the birth?

With DD1 My MIL came out for 3 weeks after we came home from the hospital. She was the BIGGEST help. She would get up with Brooke in the night occasionally so i could sleep. (She was preemie, so I was pumping still), she cooked us all our meals, helped clean, laundry, etc! It was really nice! Although 3 weeks was a little too long! 2 would've been nicer!

I'm hoping she offers to do the same this time, although this time DH will be taking parental leave and won't have to go back to work right away.
Melissa, L&D nurse and wife to my soulmate Shawn.

Mama to 3! Brooke (4), Katie (3) and our newest addition, Ryan born 3/5/2011!
