Not sure how to welcome home your newborn baby?. Below are some major points which need to be planned in advance. If you do these, I guarantee you that your baby’s homecoming will smooth sail.
Besides that a few more points are:
For a new mother taking care of her diet and water intake (I had taken warm boiled ajwain water for 1.5 months) etc is very essential for recovery and Breastfeeding both. Also never ignore the care that is needed with stitches as if some problem occurs, it can be a nightmare to handle.
Family and spouse support and help are very much needed by even the strongest of the women at this time so don't shy away in asking for it. Whenever you can, take rest and sleep or do something relaxing to keep sane as it is a very hectic phase both physically and emotionally.
Keeping in touch with your doctor and also a good pediatrician is very helpful in initial months and years as one has to regularly consult them for many things like vaccinations, colic, infections, feed etc for baby as well as for some gynecological problems for the lady. So being in touch helps.
Last but not try to be happy, and listen to good advice from well-wishers while ignoring all the judging and unwarranted advice and comments from people that can spoil your mood and spirit.
