Do you know a new mother? Do you want to support her but are at a loss how to do so beyond (or in addition to) buying something off the gift registry? (Which is awesome, don’t get me wrong!)
There are a lot of things you can buy to help with a new baby, however there are more meaningful things you can do that can make a huge difference in how that mother adjusts, survives, and enjoys the weeks and months and years after giving birth.
Please read How To Help A New Mom: 20+ Things You Can Do To Help A New Mother and try one thing on the list to support your friends, family, neighbors, anyone you may know who has a new (or not so new) baby. Please. It can mean the world to someone in the thick of this life-changing time.
(Thanks to my Mom for giving me a similar list during my first pregnancy.)
