Did your mom help?

So I'm taking a break from planning my son's birthday party and decided to watch some TV. I got suckered in to watching "16&Pregnant". This girl put her baby for adoption and then took the baby back (she gave her daughter to her aunt and uncle.)


Her mother told her that she already raised for her kids and that she wanted her daughter to raise her  own baby. I mean, the mom did help but it got me to thinking...did any of your mom's help with your first baby?

I spent a week at my mom's after my son was born to help me but I don't think I would of stayed as long if I didn't have a bad reaction to the epidural. She still helps me out here and there when I'm in a pinch and I'm very thankful that I know I can call her and be like: "OMG WHAT DO I DO?!" haha.

Here's my son and my mom at the park the other day! (Yes, he had sunblock on but threw his hat off his head...he hates hats. >_<)

Yes my mom helped. My son was my mom's first grandson.

I wasn't a teen mom tho.

 Yes, my Mom was a fantastic help when my son was born. She taught me everything and calmed me when I would freak out about the smallest things. She is still amazing with my kids and watches them during the day while I work.

Not at all. But I wouldn't have wanted her help anyway.

Mine and DH's families firmly believe that it takes a village to raise a family. My MIL came and was with us when our first was born and she stayed after for a week to help. She was amazing.

When my second was born we were living with my G'ma and Aunt (+ her family) because DH was deployed. They were all amazing.

(My mother passed before my kids were born)

My mom flew out to help after I had both kids. I wasn't a teen mom though.
