Mothering is the most important job on earth, but unfortunately kids don't come with instruction manuals. It's not unusual at times for mothers to feel a range of emotions, from boredom, exhaustion, or inadequacy to joy and ecstasy (EX-tuh-see). In addition to the care that you and your husband will be giving the child, the two of you will need to make a wide range of decisions, from whether to breast- or bottle-feed to who the baby's health-care provider should be. If you're a parent who's staying home with the child, you may at some time feel a sense of burnout. Be sure to allow yourself some quiet time when your child or children are in bed. It's also important to keep up adult communications, both with your spouse and others, especially other parents. There are parent support groups, as well as classes in which you can learn how to increase your parenting skills. Contact a healthcare professional to find out what's available.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
