A good friend of mine gave birth a week ago, and has a uterine infection that has her back in the hospital. She opted to let the baby stay home, so that the baby doesn't get sick from something at the hospital, and she can't nurse since she's on all kinds of antibiotics (she's pumping to keep her supply up). Her spirits are way down, and I want to offer her as much support as possible. So far, our group of friends has had dinners planned (we were taking them over every night until she went into the hospital). Also, she has a 21 month old at home, and her MIL is helping with him. I'm a lactation specialist, so I'm helping her in any way I can with the BFing, and have told her that even though right now, she's not able to pump as much as the baby would need, her breasts will catch up a few days after she gets home.
I just can't imagine what this is doing to her psyche. I want to help her and her family! Any suggestions?
