How to Prepare for Your First Child
Preparing for childbirth
Add to myWE:
This is one of the most important factors to consider when you find out you're pregnant. You'll need to prepare yourself both physically and mentally for this.
It's terrifying! We understand, but you can get through it. Start by choosing your healthcare facility and planning your childbirth. Some mothers might want to opt for natural childbirth or caesarian. You can speak to your doctor about this and let him advise you on the best option depending on your situation.
So, attend your appointments on time, book your hospital, pack your "labor bag" and have everything ready for your big day.

Connecting with your spouse
Some relationships do take a dip after the birth of their first child. Therefore, it is essential to bond and connect with your partner to avoid this. Spend quality time with your spouse both before and after childbirth.
Keep the spark alive in your relationship and don't be afraid to be intimate with each other.

Picking a name
On a lighter note and more onto the fun part! You'll need to choose a name for your child, of course. There's also no harm in doing this during your pregnancy.
If you know the gender of your child, all the better. If you want it to be a surprise, you and your spouse can pick a male and female name and then after childbirth, you can name the baby. For females, flower names for girls are quite popular these days, so you can even consider this.
We wish you all the best with your pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood. If you're feeling depressed and stressed during this period, you can get the help you need.
