  • There's a lot to expect after giving birth. Based on my experience, I encountered lots of problems like you cant sleep at night especially when the baby is in her first few months. When the baby get sicked of course it would bother you as a new mom coz you dont know yet what t do. And after giving birth I gained a lot and I dont know how to get back my old slim figure! Whew!

  • Immediately after you give birth, there's this sense of amazement, exhaustion, extreme joy & that "Holy Crap! What just happened?" feeling. As you bring the baby home, there are feelings of confusion, worry, happiness & extreme exhaustion. Best wishes!
