Birth: a relative's perspective
December 31, 2012 3:23 AM Subscribe
My brother and his wife are expecting their (first) baby girl in a week or two. From a relative's point of view, what do the first days/weeks look like? I.e. what is expected of me, what can I help with, what should I avoid, etc.
Unfortunately I will most probably miss the birth itself as I will be abroad for a wedding :( Should I make up for this somehow?
Gifts! When are you expected to give gifts?
