I wasn't prepared for the arrival of my first child at all. My son was born 6 weeks early and even as I was being wheeled to theatre I was panicing so much, as far as I was concerned I was supposed to have another 6 weeks to get ready for him, especially emotionally. As soon as he arrived, safe and well it was such a relief, once they are all snuggled up in your arms you know you will be ok. It't not as easy job, there is no manual but just do what you feel is right and everything will settle as it should. If you are still concerned speak to your midwife, she should make you feel better.
