Postpartum Planning

Family and friends often want to be a big part of the postpartum period to get to know the newest little one. In many other cultures, family and friends in the community are a large part of the postpartum period to allow mom to get to know her baby and rest after birth. In the American culture, a lot of friends and family have be accustomed to wanting to visit with the new baby, playing, holding, and feeding. This cultural difference can make a big difference in the postpartum period for families. It is very important that postpartum help is of a positive manner and mom is not spending her time entertaining guests or dealing with a fussy baby from overstimulation.
