so me and my husband live a good 6 hours away from all friends and family.. everyone who is baby experienced has work or their own little ones to take care of... my counselor asked me yesterday who was gonna help us out when we first brought her home and my answer was simple" my husband is gonna be getting maternity leave fore about a week and then after that we'll manage by taking turns i dont know anyone out here since we just moved in the area so i really have no other help" she got all wide eyed and concerned since this is my first baby and i dont have much baby experience.. and is trying to put me in some program were a nurse comes out and helps me for 3-6 hours a day.. i dunno about this.... i mean why cant me and my husband handle this ourselfs? think we can or maybe i should really accept the help? guess im just nervous about the idea of strangers handling my baby and being in my home while hes at work....

OK, a baby can be really frustrating. You could get a really easy baby and then you could get a really fussy baby. Either way, you will need a break. If your baby cries for 4 or 5 hours straight and you don't have any back up, some horrible things could happen to that baby. Also, if you have Postpartum Depression, that could put a lot of strain on both you and the baby. Or if you have to C-section. I hope you think about it. Just give it a try. You don't have to give your baby to the nurse. You can do everything yourself, but the nurse is there to give you a break if you need it and to help you out. Good luck. That baby is going to change everything.
