I don't know how it is in the US, but things in Britain have changed beyond recognition when it comes to having babies and being a mother in general.When I had our eldest son [he is coming up to 34]the standard of care was so high.You stayed in hospital for at least 8 nights,you were taught how to bath the baby correctly,how to breast and bottle feed,change nappies etc.You even had a night out from the hospital with your DH on the last night there,the nurses baby sat!Then gradually over the years things began to change and now new Mums are almost turfed out the moment the baby is born,and basically just have to get on with it.The new Mums aren't nurtured,so therefore they do not always nurture the new babies.In England being a mother,is no longer respected,it is all about what job you do and how much money you earn.Very sad.
