OK so I'm 32, pretty intelligent really but I have absolutely no idea about babies, looking after babies etc and I'm now starting to worry a little that you go through 9 months pregnancy, give birth then a couple of days later they let you walk out of the door with a tiny baby! That thought is absolutely terrifying me We don't have any family within a 200 mile radius so it's not like I'll have anyone I can turn to. My sisters all have kids and they both laugh at me for being so non-maternal (they don't know I'm pregnant yet) and joke about how I know absolutely nothing about kids. People keep saying - oh you will just know, and you will become really maternal as you get further along but I'm very much a business minded person who needs a good plan of what I need to do and the idea of "winging" it is pretty scarey. Does anyone else worry like this? How do we go about learning to be a mum and knowing what our babies need? Please tell me I'm not alone in thinking this and that every first time mum has these worries.
