Most people put a lot of thought and effort into choosing a career or a partner but fail to maintain the same energy when it comes to having a child.
Here are 5 things to consider before having a child:
Generally, having a child requires more expenses so you need to ask yourself if you are financially capable of taking care of a child.
If your career demands your regular time and attention, this may likely be an issue when a child comes in reality.
So it is important to create a strategic plan on how to maintain a work-life balance.
Not everyone is ready to have children
You need to have a serious conversation with your partner to know whether he or she is ready to become a mother or father.
4) Mental Preparedness:
You need to ask yourself if you are mentally prepared to become a parent because the society expects you to have a child at a certain time doesn’t mean that has to be your reality.
5) Physical Changes:
Child bearing takes a toll on women physically.
The most obvious would be the weight gain, the stretch marks on the stomach and breasts.
