You may have imagined pregnancy before, but now you are actually pregnant! As you enter the fourth week of pregnancy, feelings may wash over you. Mixed feelings are normal as you adjust to your new sense of self.

  • What kind of parent will you (or your partner) be?
  • Will you be like your mother or father?
  • How will your day-to-day life change with a baby to care for?
  • How will you meet your income or housing needs?

Pregnancy offers nine months to prepare for these and other changes. Often, the first trimester brings up questions that help you explore your values and feelings. Sometimes anxiety or concern comes up when meeting these needs seems immense. Journaling and talking to others can help. Look for a person who handled pregnancy or parenting in a way you admire and talk with them. You may like a parenting or pregnancy coach, or a therapist or group facilitator so you can get advise that is grounded in experience and research. Or, you may want an elder who has life experience in your way of living. The main idea here is to connect with people who are practical and empowering.

Through conscious decisions and transformative actions, you get to create a parenting lifestyle that reflects the hope and growth you and your baby deserve. Each generation brings its own highlights and talents to the heritage.
