Keep your pyjamas on to save your life

We are not kidding! If at all possible, do not put on real (nice) clothes for at least two weeks. This is a tip you will be thanking us for.

Once you are out of your pyjamas, people will start to expect you to be competent and energetic. Wear clean fresh pyjamas if you must, but stay in your pyjamas unless you want to cook, and clean, and entertain visitors while you are still bleeding, oozing, leaking and caring for another new human life for the first couple weeks after your delivery.

Stay in your room, and simply 'order room service' from your confinement lady, mum, sister, partner, or anyone that is taking care of you at that time. Avoid visitors until you are settled in, and ready to entertain them.
