Re: Do you have someone stay with you after the birth?
I went home from the hospital on a Friday, so my mom met me at home and was with me until Monday. She was fabulous. Everyone already had their moment with the baby at the hospital, so when she was with me she was able to have her own little time with the baby. But that wasn't her obligation. She made it very clear that she was there only to make sure that my husband & I were comfortable and taken care of for our first few days at home being a family. She did everything...cooked, cleaned, laundry, and anytime I ever needed anything, she was right there to help me. My MIL was a big help as well. I couldn't have asked for anything more, except to have my mom stay longer!!! This time, she's planning on staying at least a week or more....of course I cannot wait. She spoils me the best.
