Definitely! We expect pregnant women to take it easy, but once the baby is out they're supposed to go back to normal, taking care of everything (except themselves). And the babies - can nobody at least watch the baby while mom goes on errands? Not that most moms would leave their babies that soon I think, but still - everywhere you have to go is a germfest even without the strangers who want to touch a baby.
