Don’t Panic - shrutimanjunath
If you have acquaintance, who share a good rapport with you, ask them to get some food for you while you are in a hospital.
Even at times if you feel frustrated, u can ask them to do cleaning, cooking food, taking care of baby while you sleep. you can ask sorry later.
Another thing, I will share here, my friend who was alone during her labour of 2 days with her hubby. She was howling and panicky as it was induced labojur and she had other complications too. her howling and panics made her hubby console her for 2 days regularly and this made both of them tired. If you and your husband are managing this alone, then definitely someone is needed to take care of the baby once it is born. You might not be in full position to take care; instead your hubby can do it provided he’s not tired like in the above case. So when in labour, just relax yourself and try not to panic and depend much on your hubby continuously without him taking any rest.
I’m not sure about your situation but it’s always better you remain calm without disturbing your husband.
