In this celebrity baby news, Eva Longoria is now a mother! What are some ways to prepare yourself for motherhood?
Having a baby is exciting, but also nerve-wracking! Cupid has some tips to prepare yourself for motherhood:
1. Ask for help: Before having your child, don’t be afraid to reach out to family and friends for help. Ask those who already have children what their experience was like and have them give you any advice you may need. Also, the people closest to you can help you with shopping, doctors’ visits and more leading up to your due date to help make the whole process easier for you.
2. Have “me” time: It’s important that before becoming a mom, you take advantage of your child-free life. Spend some quality time with yourself and go shopping, have a spa day and enjoy your favorite television shows. You need to practice some self-care before bringing a new life into the world.
3. Connect with your partner: While you and your partner will soon be parents, it’s important you two connect with each other before things get very hectic. Make sure to spend some quality time with your beau before your baby is born!
