Tips For Taking Care of New Baby

>>Fonda Mitchell, MD OB/GYN - This time that you're gonna spend with this newborn at home is going to be a unique experience. There are gonna be times where they'll be just you and the baby bonding, getting to know each other. Family support can also be very helpful. I think it will vary from person to person, depending on what your needs are during this new time of your life.

>>Rachel Walker, MD OB/GYN - After that delivery, some women prefer to go home with just them, their partner, and their new baby to spend some quality time bonding together as a family. >>Meredith, 28 Weeks Pregnant - When the baby first arrives, we'd like those first couple days just to be the three of us so that we learn what that type of family is all about.

>>Chrisitie, Second Time Mom - It was really great to come home together as a family. We felt really well-prepared after leaving the hospital. It was just really great to be able to bring her home to her big sister and to be able to kind of bond there at home as a family. >>Rachel Walker, MD OB/GYN - Others prefer to have family members around to help them out in this beginning stage.

>>Amanda, Second Time Mom - We have a ton of family, but we also have a ton of friends that are like family around. And we could just pick up the phone and call anybody, 'cause you know, you're gonna have ups and downs when you come home with a newborn, and just to know that we have people around that can help is amazing.

>>Kevin Overback, MD OB/GYN - That help can be anything from grocery shopping to bringing meals to folding laundry to helping you straighten up the house.

>>Rachel Walker, MD OB/GYN - Once you return home, there's no right or wrong answer. Whatever works for you and your family is what's best. Maybe that's just you and your partner and the baby bonding, or perhaps that's additional family members around to help you out.

>>Kevin Overback, MD OB/GYN - You will figure it out and you will do great.
