As much as moms-to-be are thrilled with joy at the thought of hugging their little one for the first time, there is also another thought that may overshadow their happiness: the birth.

Loving and being loved is one of the most precious emotions that we can experience as romantic relationships are a great source of inspiration, purpose, and fulfillment. We invest in relationships with the aim to make it stronger and durable, so we build expectations, make plans and dedicate our heart to it.
