What’s everyone’s take on this ?
When a first time mum has recently given birth & guests come over for long periods of time, should the mom be expected to cook & cater for the guests

No she should not. Have the husband get bagels and tell people to help themselves.

takes are irrelevant. If you have just experienced the worst pain of your life by pushing an entire baby through your vagina, you are in no condition to go cook and cater

Um, no. People who want to see the new baby should come armed with a casserole or at least groceries and no one should expect the mother to cater to their refreshment needs.

Absolutely not. Unless someone chooses to visit, they should always come prepared to offer something to the new mom and family in goods or services. Whether it’s offering to do some household chores, and/or provide a meal, or prepare one, the last thing the family needs is to entertain - and at their time and expense.

"Bring your own food or starve" would be my exact words.

Visitors to a new mother shouldn't expect any refreshments at all and should stay only a short time - maybe 30 minutes. After that, they should leave.

when people come over to see the baby they are expected to bring a casserole that she can put in the oven for her family to eat. That is how it has always been done. She does not cook for others they cook for her so she can tend to the baby. They should only be there long enough to view the baby and leave the casserole. Some bring a bowl of salad to go with the casseroles and some leave home made salad dressing. That is proper way to do things. Anything else is just not allowed. The mother needs to tell them to leave.
