Questions for experienced mums:
I have no family in the country I live in and am due to have my first child in September. A dear family member has offered to fly here and stay with us for one month to help (eg cook, clean, shop, take the baby when we need a break etc). They suggested they arrive a couple days before my due date. My husband will be here too but will only have two weeks of paternity leave.
So the question is: is immediately after the birth the best time to accept this help? Is that when we’ll need the most support or would you suggest a little later down the line?
Appreciate your advice 😊
