Having a new baby is a life-changing event that brings both delight and doubt in its wake. All new moms have thoughts such as, "Why can't I soothe my baby?" "Are other new moms handling motherhood better than I am?" and "Will my partner and I ever stop squabbling now that baby makes three?" These kinds of thoughts can lead even the most confident women to feel stressed out and anxious.
