After delivery, what's next?

Wow, at last the wait is over. Now you have a new family member to take care and he or she will become the centre of gravity in the family. If today is your first day at home, it is your opportunity to take lots of rest. Afterall, you have lost some blood. Your body needs time and nutrients to recuperate.

Here are some suggestions for you to become a Supermum and of course, have a super baby too.

This is because you are giving the baby an opportunity to develop their internal organs fully. Furthermore, mother's milk is the best food for baby. It is easy to digest and contains all the essential nutrients for the baby to develop.
