You and your family are getting ready to bring the baby home. But a lot happens just after birth. It’s easier to get some important items ahead of time. Here’s a checklist of items you might consider getting ahead of time. The best time would be during your nesting period. Some Moms can get the urge to clean and organize everything around them.
Labor and delivery
What is labor? It is the process of childbirth, starting with squeezing and relaxing the uterus and ending with the birth of the baby. If you’re like a lot of pregnant moms, you might be wondering how you’ll know your body is getting ready for birth.
Look out for these 10 signs:
Cramps and greater back pain
Weight gain stops
Tired and “nesting instinct”
Vaginal discharge changes color and consistency
Stronger, more frequent cramps
