I’m seeing lots of opinions about Kate getting up and at em’ so soon after birth but It’s a totally individual thing that shouldn’t be judged. Personally having gone to 42 weeks and being in hospital for 24 hrs being induced I was up and about a few hours after giving birth and desperate to be released as soon as the sun came up so I could crack on with this new chapter I’d been not so patiently waiting for! ⏳ Had I had someone on hand willing to do a blow dry and make up, I think I would have gratefully accepted given the bag of turds I felt like. 💩
We had both our parents round on the same day, then our sisters and then we pulled up the drawbridge & spent the next two weeks in a little bubble of oxytocin just the 3 of us. I know even that’s not for everyone so you just do you and forget how other people choose to recover. 👨👩👧 P.s Loving seeing everyone’s post birth photos!
