Relationship/Support Check

Are you ready for the emotional changes that come with having a baby? Is your partner ready? How would having a baby impact your emotions and your relationship with your partner?

  • Be sure about your relationship before you start planning a pregnancy
  • Having a baby does not make a bad relationship better, it only adds to the stress
  • Having mixed feelings about becoming pregnant are normal
  • Talk to family, friends, and other parents
  • Discuss how you might deal with the emotional, physical and financial changes that parenthood will bring
  • Having a child results in a life long connection to your partner
