• To get the most out of your maternity leave, it's important to plan ahead.

  • With each passing week, your baby's muscles develop, and you'll feel more and more distinctive movements.

  • You and your partner may be ready to seek help to conceive, and fertility treatment seems like the next logical step. But slow down: you may be skipping a step or two.

  • You're trying to get pregnant, but that + test result still eludes you. You're trying everything - tracking your cycle, marking the first day of your period on a calendar - even taking your basal body temperature to find out if you're ovulating.

  • Are you wondering if the time is right to welcome another child into your family? Here are a few things to consider:

  • Do you have questions about managing breast-feeding problems? Learn more about dealing with milk supply, feeding, and breast pain issues, and find out when to call a lactation consultant.

  • Starting to breast-feed your baby? Learn more about the benefits of breast-feeding and what to expect.

  • New or expecting mothers have a lot on their minds, so they may not be thinking about their allergies – but their allergies may still be there, and allergy medications can be a cause of concern during pregnancy and breast-feeding.

  • Premature babies, or preemies, particularly those born before 37 weeks in the womb or those who are very small, need extra help. Find out more about your preemie's special needs.
