Becoming a mother is a wonderful feeling and experience in a woman's life but it is full of changes and challenges too. Every day one learns new things. Everything is new especially for a first time mom. After being through a nine-month pregnancy, which sometimes in itself is very physically and emotionally draining and also childbirth, which is not easy in any way, one is bound to feel exhausted. Whether it's a C-section delivery or normal one in both cases a new mom's body is in pain and needs care and recovery. Besides, now the baby is no longer in the womb he or she needs care too. It takes time before everything settles down well.
When I became a mom, 9 years back through a C-section delivery, even when I was relieved to come back home from the hospital after 5 days I and my family both felt that there were few things which we should have planned and prepared for in advance. It would have saved us many small and big troubles which we faced later. Also, there were many things we learned.
I have tried to compile and share as many tips as I can recollect from my experience, which can help new mom's and families to get better prepared for the new babies homecoming.
Please keep in mind these few points first.
