In Holland, mommies don’t go home alone. Instead, for 8-10 days postnatal, a nurse lives with the new family to help with things like baby care, laundry, and assisting with any other kids in the home. The tradition is called ‘Kraamzorg.’ Also, these nurses are trained to teach parents to use baby massage to calm a crying infant and can make breakfast for the tired, breastfeeding mother. Talk about amazing customer service! If you’re interested and want to learn more about how this works in Holland, visit this site. Holland is also the European country that boasts the most home births per capita. It is believed that a quarter of women choose to and then successfully labor and deliver all at home.
