The minute that extra blue line appears on the pregnancy test is the minute that life for a first-time parent becomes an exciting – yet more than a little scary – roller coaster of joy, worry, more joy and way more worry. Because let’s face it: everything you thought you knew about yourself goes out the window when you start growing a human being! Luckily, help is at hand thanks to the experts from Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital and The Choolani Clinic, where the pregnancy and newborn gurus will help dispel the myths, answer the questions, and allay the bag load of concerns you’ve been worrying about since you tinkled on that stick.
