I am looking for anecdotes about family behavior and traditions around the birth of a child.
When a child is born in your family, what happens next?
How long is it before (nearby) family typically meets the newborn child?
Is it traditional for family members who live nearby to give some kind of help to the new parents – babysitting older children, bringing food, running errands, delivering presents?
Do you know of any specific traditions?
If you don’t really have traditions per se, share something that you really appreciated, or that you wished would have happened but didn’t.
