After your short stay in hospital it's time to gather your belongings, take your baby home and embark on a new phase in your life. You may suddenly wonder whether you're ready for this challenge, but there's no going back. Many new parents feel quite anxious about taking their baby home from hospital. It's perfectly normal to feel worried about looking after a newborn when you've never done it before. But you can rest assured that no one will do a better job of caring for your baby than you and your partner.
Initially, IVF parents may worry more about baby care than new parents in general. This is probably because infertility and IVF treatment can rock your beliefs about your ability to look after your baby and keep your baby safe. But, of course, you're as competent as anyone else and over time you get back your trust in yourself and feel more confident about caring for your baby.
