Becoming a Parent

Being a parent is an exciting time but it’s important to understand that it can also be overwhelming because you’re going to have to deal with positive and negative issues. Firstly, you will be tired in the first few weeks after the baby’s arrival because the baby needs to feed every 3 to 4 hours throughout the day and night.

Secondly, you need to ensure that you’ve assessed your financial situation so that you can cover the cost of hygiene supplies such as nappies and baby wipes, baby clothing and milk formula if you’re not breast feeding.

Thirdly, you need to implement a positive, caring style of parenting with support from family and friends. A relaxed mother usually means a happy baby.

You’re going to be making decisions about your child’s upbringing and it’s essential that you have support from a counsellor/social worker as well as family and friends.
