Feeling lost, overwhelmed,
exhausted, and sad?

Maybe you’re thinking about all those people who said, “Enjoy every moment,” and wondering why you’re not. You might be having thoughts like, “What if I fall while I’m holding the baby?” or “What if I never bond with my baby?” or “Am I just a bad parent?”
