Are You Ready for Parenthood?

By Dr Bill Maier

Not all new parents are prepared for the changes that a baby will bring into their lives.

Before having children, couples are free to go out to dinner at a moment's notice, or watch a movie.

They can stay up late on Friday night and sleep in on Saturday.

But all that changes when baby comes home.

Now, your free time is spent caring for your new infant. Your schedule is no longer your own, and you can also forget about waking up late on Saturdays.

Sounds grim? Only to those who haven't experienced the joy of parenthood! It's a lot of work, but nothing could be more fulfilling.

The important thing is to go into parenthood with your eyes wide open. Make sure you understand the demands of childrearing before you decide to conceive.

If you're ready, you're in for the ride of your life.
