Being a New Mother Being a new mother was a learning experience equal to no other in my opinion Even before my child was born I was already learning to be a mother Instinctively I began protecting my unborn child by curtailing many activities that I felt would put my child at risk I quit roller skating skiing jumping from a rope into the river and many more potentially dangerous activities one does as a sixteen-year-old I found myself putting my hand over my stomach in a reflex action of protecting my baby Potential motherhood already was changing me into a different person I felt like a mother already Motherhood actually began for me on December 1 1968 I had a beautiful daughter named Elizabeth Anne whom I adored on sight The feelings I had were different from anything I had felt before I was excited scared happy and sad all at the same time I didnt know if I could handle this monumental job that I faced as a new mother I was very apprehensive about caring for my baby I had read several books on child rearing before delivery but it seemed like every bit of knowledge I had learned flew out the window when my baby was born Even though I felt inadequate for the task in a few days it was time to take my baby home I was on my own and it was terrifying While taking care of my newborn baby I soon became a multi-functional worker If only a new mother could be like an octopus with eight arms One arm could be changing the diaper one arm reaching to get the formula and the bottle and one arm retrieving the blanket the baby just kicked off Unfortunately we humans have only two arms and have to think of new strategies to accomplish many tasks as quickly and efficiently as possible At first this was impossible
