From our 2014 Johnson's Baby Sense Seminars MC and panel discussion host, Richard Hardiman. Richard is a media personality, businessman and proud father of three.
Becoming a new parent is somewhat of a roller coaster ride. Whether you are ready for it or not the ups and downs are heading your way and once you are strapped in there is very little you can do to stop the action. And believe me it’s non stop action. There is nothing that can fully prepare you for childbirth or indeed bringing a child home for the first time; that said and complete strangers advice aside, surrounding yourself with as much as knowledge as possible is perhaps one way to at least feel equipped to navigate these new seas you are about to embark on.
It is a truly magical time in one's life and attending events like the Johnson's Baby Sense Seminars that bring together others in the same situation as you is perhaps one of the most powerful coping mechanisms you could have. Seeing others that are in the same boat, have the same fears and worries and being surrounded by experts who have in-depth knowledge on the subject and sympathy to your situation goes a long way to taking some of the unknown away and allowing more room for the excitement and joy to enter.
I cannot wait to be at these seminars as a parent and I hope that you allow yourself to have the time to gain some incredible insight into this magical and as yet uncharted adventure in your life.
