    The news of expecting a baby can be exciting and thrilling for couples, at the same time this journey can bring about mixed emotions of anxiety and fear regarding the wellbeing of the baby, the pain while birthing, uncertainty, outcome of birth and sometimes even the lack of confidence and knowledge of taking care of the baby and yourself..
