  • What do I need to do to keep in touch with my friends and relatives before and after the baby is born?

  • How can I create a vibrant support system in my community that will help me to feel competent as a new mother?
  • Where do I get my self-awareness? My personal equilibrium? My self-possession? My independence?
  • How can I best prepare myself for the next season of my life?
