How to help her after childbirth

15 August 2016, 09:26 Solomon Opala

A wife is usually at her lowest after childbirth and this is the time she needs her husband to help the most. She is particularly weak from the ordeal and unable to fend for herself and the baby. She needs to rest her back and also get milk for breast feeding the newborn. She may also be affected by a condition known as postnatal depression.

An understanding partner will therefore create more time to be with her and provide the needed support. This includes helping take care of the baby as she sleeps at night.
