When a child is born, it’s not only the birthday of a baby, it is also the birthday of a new you: you are all of a sudden someone’s mom or someone’s dad. It’s both one of the most rewarding and one of the most intimidating journeys you can possibly embark to in your lifetime. Pregnancy is a big rite of passage, from the second a little life is created to the moment a baby is born. As any transition period it is full of moments of doubt on whether you are doing alright, if you are doing enough or too much, if everything will be okay. At the same time, when you hold your baby for the very first time it’s a moment of eternal clarity. It all makes sense and it makes everything right. Time stops, but then what? Navigating the sheer endless and dense jungle of all thing baby is challenging. This section thus offers a broad range of support, from easy checklist of the essentials you really need (and sometimes more important: what you don’t need), recommendations on how to approach certain aspects of parenthood and genereally recommendations for life with your baby.
