Being a first-time mom is so exciting, but also extremely stressful these days.
Moms worry about their first one constantly watching for symptoms or signs of anything negative that may be happening. Your inbox get’s filled with weekly milestone updates to check off. But you’re still unsure if you know what you are doing as a parent.
At the time of my first child, many of my friends had already had their second babies. I felt alone and didn’t have any resources other than my pediatrician to call.
I wish there had been a resource with information about parenting and if there was a problem some guidance on what to do next.
