Me, with my eldest, who is now a tween. We were just blessed then that I had healthy pregnancy and my CS delivery was successful with the help of my OB, Pedia and my loving husband. But life as a new mom back then will be much easier if I had known more and there were more available help. If I can turn back time, when I was pregnant with my first child, I wish I had just been pregnant in this decade. My pregnancy with my eldest was like groping in the dark, and my husband and I had just relied on my ob-gyne and pediatrician. We made sure...
