Podcast Episode 1: Home
The moment that you get home with your newborn, you’re hit with the feeling that you have no idea what you're doing. Today we’re going to talk to a panel of seasoned moms about what to expect that first night and how to prepare yourself for the reality of being in charge of a brand new baby, especially if it’s your first time. No one really prepares you for how you will feel, and of course it’s different for everyone. So if you’re going to be bringing home a baby soon, you won’t want to miss this informative and entertaining discussion!
Our speakers today are Christine, a PICU nurse and mom of four boys ages five and under; Ashley, who is the community manager at GDiapers and the mom of a nine-year-old and a toddler; and Rachel, a new mom to a baby girl.
Advice on how to prepare for the big day when you bring home your baby.
The moment that Christine felt like she could really handle having a baby.
How moms and dads might prepare the second time around and how bringing home a second baby differs from bringing home the first baby.
Ashley describes the first day after bringing her first baby home, when reality set in.
How Rachel’s premature delivery and post-birth complications made the transition to home a bit less settled than it would have been if the baby had waited until her due date.
What worked for each of the moms when it came to those first days at home.
