Having a newborn and nervous? You’re not alone

Bringing a newborn into the world changes everything. I was completely terrified initially. Finding out I was pregnant was a surprise. Yes I’m one of the lucky ones who didn’t struggle to fall pregnant. My husband and I vividly remember the day we found out I was pregnant. It was a bit of a shock certainly a pleasant surprise but definitely not planned. All of a sudden we had to worry about surviving on one wage. How would our world change? There’s so many things to think about and plan. It can be pretty scary, after all being a parent isn’t easy. The good news is you’re not alone.

I meet so many wonderful couples and new parents from all walks of life. Being a newborn photographer means I’m often privileged to learn the different journeys women travel becoming a Mummy. We all have different fears and it’s comforting to know today support is readily available. Challenges are sometimes physical, emotion or financial. Sadly all these challenges may present themselves together making your path even harder.
