Welcoming Your New Baby

Being the mother of a new baby is a huge responsibility. No one is born with the skills necessary to care for a baby. Simply put, you learn mothering skills by taking care of your baby. If you are already a parent, the duties may be more familiar, but each new baby is amazing and unique and keeping them healthy and happy is important.
