The fourth trimester is a symbiotic time between mother and baby. Mothers and fathers are learning about their babies, and babies are learning about their parents. Changes in relationships with partners can become strained in this new uncharted territory. Becoming a new mom can throw even the most confident, successful woman for a loop.
A new mom faces a variety of emotional and physical struggles.
