I run a home-based business and it's nature does not allow me to hire someone to fill-in for me (nor can I afford it). My husband will be home for 9 weeks after the birth, so he can help with the baby, but of course can not breastfeed. Though I am thankful to have his help, he is not the greatest around the house (his cleaning and cooking skills are quite remedial). And he can not really help with the business.
If all goes normally with the birth, can I expect to squeeze in a few hours at my desk/on the phone, right after giving birth (literally, like the next day or 2 days after)? I really don't know what to expect, so your thoughts are appreciated. I understand that this is different for everyone, but hearing your thoughts will still give me something to go on vs. absolutely nothing.
Thanks in advance.
