I am looking for some thoughts on how much help you feel you needed after the birth of your Multiples?
My DS1 will be in preschool/daycare by the time the twins are born. This means typically M-F, 10-5pm.
My husband and I both work part to full time (self employed) and plan to take the first 2-3 months off.
We have NO family and NO friends here who are able to help us at all. We also have NO one coming to help around, during or after the birth.
Given those circumstances, how much help, if any, do we need?
I was thinking about trying to hire a housekeeper to come 1x a week to clean and do laundry and possibly get groceries. (We will have a CSA box but this stops about a month after the births). I was also going to try to find someone for the first 2-3 months to come maybe 2-4 times a week (is that enough/too much?) for a few hours in the afternoons to DH and I can both have 'time off'. They would be able to stay with the twins (and I would plan on pumping so there was some stash in the fridge for that person).
On a side note, we also live in an area with no grocery delivery, etc and do not have easy access to a car but have a bike with a kid trailer which fits one child attached.
