You made a tiny human – congratulations! Now what? Our Clinical Director of Midwifery, Lauren Williams, shares her knowledge to help you through those special, yet crazy first weeks with your newborn.
Making the transition from being parented to being a parent is a time of discovery, trial and error, and learning. Many new parents underestimate their own instincts and ability to care for and understand a newborn, but you will find yourself learning and understanding your baby’s cues and cries very quickly. Relax and take this time to cuddle, sleep, feed and respond to your baby’s needs as best you can.
