I remember the first time I went into labor with my first child. I had a lot of fears as I walked into the hospital about to have my world change forever.
I was worried about how I would handle the pain, what was going to happen and if my child was going to be okay. I was thankful that I had my husband by my side to be there to support me and ease this transition for the both of us. I was also very thankful my mom was there too — someone who has done it 4 times over and could offer me an honest perspective.
