Every family has a different wish and demand. Together we can formulate your wish and look at the possibilities. The best time to prepare for your postnatal time is around your 7th or 8th month of pregnancy and can be an additional page of your birth plan.
Postnatal care should be supported by us as a community. However, it is unrealistic to expect free care for 6 weeks. In the Netherlands we fortunately have support from maternity care for the first few days, which can take over much of the care.
It takes a lot of training and time to provide good care. Parents could therefore save some money before delivery to get extra care for the first few months after delivery. Consider carrying the baby instead of buying a pram, letting the baby sleep with you instead of having its own room with its own furniture.
"The only thing that should be new is the baby."
