Why is it hard to accept help?


You have just had a new baby, a very exciting time in your life but also exhausting. The hours of labor, the delivery ( vag/c-section) or a scheduled c-section and then add in feedings, caring for the baby/ babies, it’s all tiring and sleep deprived. The exhaustion is also multiplied in emergency deliveries and NICU stays. You have just run a marathon of life!

Say yes to to things that you truly need help with; laundry, meals, cleaning up around the house, help with the other kids and groceries.

Say no to things that you don’t need help with, someone offering to come and hold the baby or feed the baby while you sleep.

Say yes to the things you are comfortable with and no to the things you are not comfortable with.
