The first weeks and months at home with your newborn will be exciting and extremely busy. This is a great time to say ‘Yes’ to any offers of help. Don’t be shy about suggesting what they can do to help you out. Home made meals that you can throw in the fridge or freezer and can easily re-heat later will be invaluable in the first few months – stock up the freezer before the birth. You might even like someone to help do some washing, or take bub for a walk while you have a shower or even a little rest! There is No Shame in asking for help, so GO FOR IT!
