Wednesday, September 6th, 2017

If you are planning to grow your family, you and your husband should consider certain things, such as:

  • Mental preparation
  • Financial condition
  • Support system

Parenthood is a reward as well as a responsibility. Have confidence in yourself and your husband. With little patience and loads of love it will be a fulfilling experience.

Mental Preparation

Parenthood brings lots of joy, excitement and happiness in your life. However, parenting is also stressful sometimes, as it adds loads of responsibilities. Once the baby comes
home, your daily routine is going to change completely. Probably, you are going to spend sleepless nights often and lack of sleep might increase your hatred for routine 
household works.

Arrival of baby might affect your career plans or higher education goals. Baby blues or postpartum depression is a common mental health problem observed after delivery. 
Before getting pregnant, it is important to take account of all these challenges and be prepared mentally.

Financial Condition
