Bonding with Your Baby

Every woman is different. Some women are screaming while they're pushing, some women they breathe their baby out, some people fall apart, some people are excited. The fact is that bonding is a very personal and intimate thing. Some of us fell in love the first time that we saw our husband, and some of us are still trying to figure out how to love them. And the same thing happens with a baby. You don't sometimes bond right away, and that is okay. What you have to be very careful, I tell my clients, is not to think that you should be feeling a certain way or the way that you think other people expect you. Just trust that you know that you will fall in love with this baby, that everything will actually happen the way that it's supposed to happen, not the way that some expert told you that it should happen.
