Partner relationship

Life with a new baby can be wonderful but it can also be chaotic and exhausting if you don't have the right emotional support from your partner and family. 

Before starting a family, do your research and make sure you both understand how a baby will change the dynamic of your relationship and whether it's something you’re willing to go through now, or if you’d prefer to wait a little longer.

Once you’ve taken a closer look at your personal journey, both you and your partner can decide if you're ready to take the next step in your relationship. Have you done everything you’ve wanted to do as a couple? Things that are a lot easier to achieve without carrying a baby bag around? Are you both on the same page regarding family planning?
