These tips may also apply to regular Mums, but I highlight some things that are especially important for Rainbow Mums.
1. Please say when you’d like to visit. Unless you are a BFF to the Mum, or a really close family member, don’t just show up. It may be a bad time for the family. If you do visit, keep it short and sweet. Just because the Mother and Baby are house-bound doesn’t mean that it’s a 24-7 visiting/entertainment zone. Think about the work with the baby, the sleepless nights, back and other aches, colic… Those few moments of silence and me-time feel like heaven-sent breaks, so a visit should be an improvement of that and not a drain. Be sensitive.
