and they lived happily ever after.... Sometimes we think that the birth of our precious little baby is the happy ending of so much waiting and expecting. But that's when the real story begins. this is when you start writing your own story as the parent of this particular baby and sometimes it finds us unprepared and things don't turn to be as idyllic as we imagined. It is always a good idea to have a plan. As important as it is to have the birth plan, it should be to have a postpartum plan. What is that? it is what you need to have ready for the first weeks after delivery, so that everything works as smoothly as possible. A plan that can help you have a good start with your new baby.
