Once you have your new daughter or son, you may feel confident, unsure, elated, depressed, excited, sad and sometimes overwhelmed.
Try to be patient with yourself. You and your baby will be getting to know each other. With each new day, you'll learn a little more and will feel a bit more confident.
Make good use of all the support you'll feel around you. Call on your friends, family, health care provider and other parents for advice and reassurance.
