6 Tips for handling the transition into motherhood

Of all the things that people warned me of when I first announced I was pregnant, very few of them ended up breaking into the top ten of things I should have been prepared for.  They mentioned sleepless nights, dirty nappies and sore breasts but these were to be expected with a newborn in the house.
