It’s never a bad idea to visit a counselor, to discuss your future plans and gain some insight. Sometimes an outside party can help you to identify any areas in your life that need attention, or guide you in setting goals and milestones. You will want to be certain your psyche is in good health, and that you and your partner are both emotionally mature enough for the demands of a child. You should also see your primary care doctor or an OBGYN to discuss your plans. They can give you some health tips and advice, evaluate your physical readiness, and help you address any concerns you may have going forward.
