The first week with your newborn

By | November 24, 2009

The first week passes in a daze of information overload and sleep deprivation. Everything is new, emotional…..

Too much is happening. The body has gone through a tough time, a whole new person is attached to me like superglue for the foreseeable future, too many people coming over to meet, well meaning advice being shoved down your throat, well intentioned help invading my private space, information overload and not enough time to process it, no sleep, joy, anxieties, bringing the baby home……

For me, the first week was actually tougher than the birth.
