Maternity leave can be a very isolated experience. The OBGYN only actively looks after you until the baby is delivered. Friends and family visit and bring food for the first few weeks after your delivery…then life goes back to normal for them; most of them are also at work during the day. Your partner is on paternity leave for a week and then he goes back to work.

And then all that remains are you and your baby and your (…potentially mind-numbing) routine of feeding, burping, changing nappies and putting your baby to sleep.
