Not sure if this is the right place,so Mods please feel free to move.

Since my SD has had the baby about a month ago, I've felt "removed" and not much in common with her. We've had a great relationship for the past 10 years, but since she is a new Mom, I have no input to offer.

So, a friend suggested that I encourage her on "woman, after the baby" stuff,but I have no clue as to what needs to be done,thought about or said.

May I ask all mothers out there what they would suggest to a new mother, OTHER than baby info and advice, what things to do/say/be as a WOMAN and WIFE, outside of being a mother.

I will covet all replies and comple them in a list/note to her. I will also send her a new recipe.

Di, I needed a friend to go walking / excercising with. I also wanted to have a day out to buy a whole new head to toe un maternity clothing. I also needed someone to do lunch on occassion a talk "other things" but I am afraid baby may pop up in the topic on occassion.

my DIL appreciated a gift cert. for manicure and pedicure to be used when she was ready - she thoroughly enjoyed it when the time was right for her.

Thanks, gals. I can maybe make her up a "spa" gift pack of my own products! I use natural sea sponge and fun leg-shaving soap.

Any more advice out there??

Di, I dont know if this comes to late or not, I operate a company called Clone me. After much thought and several months of trial and error, I am focusing my services to new moms, So as a 'new moms personal assistant' I will be focusing my attention on new moms and their care and well being.

So I am offering things such as respite care for moms, running errands, shopping,things that take a new mom away from her little one. Even just a day of babysitting while she gets out to be with her other friends.

If they are work at home moms , be an inhome nanny so they can focus on their business.

I even design biz cards, flyers, letterheads or just type documents anything that can take you away from your new little one.

I can even just sit and have a cup of tea r coffee with you and listening to your concerns.

Well thats what i think I will be doing, because when I was a new mom as with being sexually abused and feeling alone, I wish someone was there.

Btw Hi everyone. Sorry its been so long. So Di, maybe you can find someone in your area that can or does offer something like that. Might be worth a try.
