Have you ever thought that you may not connect with your baby after giving birth to them?
Believe it or not, it is a common thought plagued by many first time mom's as well as mom's who have had multiple pregnancies.
Giving birth can be equivalent to an out of body experience that is a commonality for many women.
Whether you deliver your baby natural, through c-section or epidural it generally brings two natural and common popular reactions which are almost always, awe and secondly, disbelief.
Disbelief: shocked into another planet that this little being was created by you and that he/she is yours.
Awe: crying profusely for the beautiful moment being felt at that point in time
It is a feeling that cannot be described by words.

The love shared between a mom and her baby is simply joyful love that can be felt deep within the soul.
Some mom's will encounter their experience of love in many various and distinct ways that may not imitate another mom's exact occcurence.
Which is totally fine, as there's no true exact way of receiving love as it already existed before they even arrived.
There's no need to feel bad in any way for any initial non-connection. Keep in mind that the bond between a mom and their newborn is not always easy or immediate.
They know exactly who you are first! They've listened to you endlessly for hours and that first holding of them after they're born seals the deal for them.
They will make the baby-parent-mom connection upon delivery while mom is stressing out and getting all worked up, baby is just fine finally being in mommy's arms.
I can atest to the same scary feeling upon delivery my angel but when she arrived I saw how she was cool as a cucumber. It allowed me to get the courage and strength to stay strong and relax a little and from that point on I was okay.
