Parenthood Tips for Intended Parents Parents-in-the-making have plenty to think with each and every pregnancy. Adding the complicated medical, legal, social and financial feats of surrogacy, it can be natural for intended parents to be so absorbed in the process that they forget about their most important journey: parenthood. Getting caught up in the world of surrogacy is easy, but as an intended parent, you need to plan well for the arrival of your angel. Below are some tips to help you: 1. Read, read, read.
Finding Similarities Between Donors and Life
Thousands of pages online and offline are dedicated to the topic of newborn care and parenting. This information can get overwhelming, but it may just be smart to read one or two from time to time help you set expectations becoming know what to expect when parenting your newborn.
Getting Creative With Resources Advice
2. Take parenting classes. Get in touch with your local school district, county family services, pediatrician or hospital and ask about parenting classes and other resources that could be helpful to you. They can offer advice regarding preparing for the arrival of your baby, and also on services that you will need from that time on. 3. Get ready for change. At least for the first few months, your life will probably be mostly about your new little bundle. Be ready for a conservative social life and middle-of-the-night feedings, and talk to other members of the household about childcare responsibilities and expectations in advance. 4. Start gathering baby essentials. While your baby is yet to be born, begin gathering the essentials, like a crib, baby pillows, stroller, etc. This step is absolutely necessary in terms of physical preparation, but at the same time, it also helps you ease into the mindset of a parent. 5. Have a support network. Parenthood can be feat, but friends and family often know that. Don’t refuse help when it’s available; in fact, build a support system to help you when your comes home. 6. Relax. You likely have an idea how you want to parent your child, but make sure you are flexible enough to go with the flow. There are times when some things don’t go as intended, even if we only intended for the best for our child, and that is okay. You have to learn to let go. 7. Enjoy your new world! You may not experience the pregnancy yourself, but you do have the entire nine months (or so) to prepare yourself mentally, emotionally and even physically for your new life with your baby. Involve yourself as much as possible throughout your surrogate’s pregnancy, enroll in registries and have a baby shower – no one said you can’t! Only the pregnancy isn’t yours – the child is.
