Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re having a baby, it’s always best to keep stress and emotional turmoil to a minimum. Cupid has some tips:

1. Research: When you’re pregnant, it’s a good idea to conduct some research. Learn about the changes that will be happening in your body so that you know what to expect. After you read about it and/or take a course about it, you will feel better about being pregnant. Speak with other women in your life who have given birth and experienced the whole pregnancy process as well.

You’ll have a smoother delivery and lose the weight quicker after giving birth. Plus, it will make you feel good during this life-changing experience.
