Pregnancy With Styles Part 1 Accepting Motherhood Without Fear

There are certain experiences that have left lasting impressions in my subconscious mind.   Many of my friends got pregnant during or soon after high school.  They struggled financially and emotionally during pregnancy.  My mother lost her first-born soon after a natural birth, and had a miscarriage at 6 months during another pregnancy.  My sister had her children by C-Section after long, tiring deliveries, the last one left her in the hospital for days because a doctor nicked her during surgery.  Movies have told us the experience of giving birth is a dramatic and often traumatic experience.  Super Nanny makes me feel like kids are unruly and I need someone like her to get parenting right.   Friends and Family constantly tell me “your life will never be the same!”  GEEEEEEEZ!
