that I feel have helped me learn about pregnancy and motherhood.
Although nothing could prepare you emotionally and physically for

prepare and expect fewer surprises. Also, take all the advice and
knowledge you gained with a grain of salt. Always, if in doubt,
consult your doctor. He or she will be more than happy to help you.

pregnancy + parenting.
A wonderful site for women. The chat rooms are especially
useful, so do go ahead and find a support group for pregnancy or

very supportive groups and helped me go through my first weeks
