We believe babies needn't be expensive. You can add as much jazz as you like to raise a little one only to find later that you could have done without.
Being a mom is hard especially if it's your first time, no matter how helpful your family and friends are. A baby is a fragile new-being and takes time to adjust to the new world which is so different from the world inside the womb. The best thing you can give your baby is YOU.
