A baby is coming. Now what to do? What must we know to insure our baby´s well being we wonder. What if we do wrong, what if we do nothing when we should have done something, how can we live with this responsibility, we ask.

Someone please guide us and tell us what we must do to be good parents to our child. Who can help us know better and make the right choices. Who?

Dear Future Parents…that WHO, is YOU. YOUR intuition will guide you, you just have to believe.
