My first bit of advice is not to look in the mirror for at least a few days after your baby is born. I'm not trying to be dramatic, but trust me, if you look at your naked body right after delivering a baby, you will feel very, very dramatic. It's not worth the blow to your self-esteem, so just hold off for a few days, maybe a week.
