Conclusion to Journey to Parenthood

Even though the process of becoming a parent can be overwhelming, it is also one of the most empowering, satisfying, and exciting experiences that women and their partners share. Creating a baby can make the bonds between couples,  their families, and their other children stronger. Part of this strength comes from educating yourselves about your options, and the confidence that comes with that education. Another part comes from good communication between you and your partner, with your family, with your baby's health care provider, and with others who have shared the experience that you are going through. And remember that only you and your partner can make decisions that will be best for you and your baby.

Believe in yourselves, and enjoy the journey!
