Becoming caregivers – changes and challenges

With a new baby comes changes and challenges to you and your family’s life. Special moments of pure joy and wonderment co-exist with physical and emotional demands of becoming new parents/caregivers at a time when resources may already be depleted from the impact of childbirth and disrupted sleep. It is important that parents/caregivers find the balance between meeting their own needs and meeting their baby’s and focus on staying physically and emotionally healthy.
