How can you transition from having a single child to care for to two newborns, especially after six heavy procedures to get pregnant?

Cupid’s Advice:
Prepare, prepare, prepare.

1. Stay well: Maintain the healthy lifestyle you had while trying to get pregnant.  Stay on top of doctor’s visits, and recall tips from your previous pregnancy.

2. Keep your child involved: Your firstborn may feel neglected if a new baby or two enter the picture.  Make sure they receive love and attention, and ask for their input concerning their sibling(s) to be, so the bonding process starts early.

3. Lean on others: Remember the strength of your partnership.  If you’re single, reach out to family and friends for support.  No one should go through a pregnancy alone.
