Everyone floods you with all sorts of love and ofcourse tons of unasked advice.
Amidst all this,we fail in preparing ourselves for the upcoming events.
We usually think about what sort of care to be taken during pregnancy and probably the mode of delivery too.But we often forget the main part,the part after the baby comes.
And most of us are a nuclear family and not all of us have access to someone experienced to help us out.
The 9 months of pregnancy is like a boon if you can utilize it to the fullest.
Use this time to do all sorts of research like ,

#is there are probability of post partum depression?
#what do you do if the baby cries incessantly?
#what are the red flag signs to look for in the baby?
#do’s and don’ts of breastfeeding
#what stuff to buy for your baby’s different needs like bathing,sleeping etc?
The above are just a few to begin with.
The first 4-8 weeks are really sleepless for most of the mothers and it takes time for the baby’s sleep cycle to regularize.This added to postpartum blues can cause all sorts of emotions,especially guilt and sadness and make the mother really depressed.
