Broken babies or broken mummies?

Many of the parents I support are highly successful in their chosen field of expertise.  They are used to feeling accomplished and being good at what they do.  It may have been many years since they were “beginners” at anything.  And yet, here they are, responsible for a whole other person who can’t communicate their needs verbally and comes with no manual.  Is it any wonder that many (most?) new parents feel out of their depth?
