The big day has finally arrived and all your concerns about getting through labor and birth are now behind you. Your precious new baby is here and you are ready to go home and start your lives together as a family. As helpful as the hospital staff can be, all of the interruptions, the procedures, the strangers, the bright lights, can all leave new parents overwhelmed.
There is great excitement about coming home to the peace and privacy of your own home, and the comfort of your own bed. You will also be leaving the assistance and care of the hospital staff, who have been right there to answer questions and offer suggestions. You will now be on your own. Good preparation ahead of time will make the transition from hospital to home smoother and less stressful. A well thought out plan will contribute greatly in setting a loving and rewarding foundation for the new baby and the new family.
