The New Age Parent

Time was when new parents meant a man and woman, married and ready to have a baby. The parents-to-be would be helped by members of the external family, most notably an elderly grandmother acting as a doula and the new mother would be inundated with little nuggets of wisdom that had been passed down the generations. The father would have minimal involvement in any of this; after all, he had to go to work. The parents would see a doctor, take all the required medication and precautions and if everything went well, deliver a baby that was healthy.

The reality today is very different. New parents do many things differently that their grandparents and even their parents couldn’t possibly have dreamed of. Read on to find out some of the differences:

Heterogeneity

Once upon a time, a family was defined as a mother, a father and a child. Not anymore. Even in countries where homosexuality is not yet legalized, there are families where there are two fathers or two mothers. The children may have been adopted, conceived through in vitro fertilization or born through surrogacy. This is not to mention single-parent families, step families, half siblings and families with grandparents parenting. There are many different family models now and none are considered ‘ideal’ anymore by sociologists. One of the reasons why genetic testing in HK and other countries have become more popular and commercial is because the family is no longer limited to its biological ties.

Fore Warned is Fore Armed

Thanks to advanced medical technology like the t21 test HK and other countries offer, parents can find out whether their children have any congenital defects or abnormalities. For instance, the above test can inform the parents of whether their child has a larger likelihood of having Down syndrome. When parents are aware of any conditions, they are better able to prepare for and deal with the challenges of bringing up a child who needs special attention. Many parents choose to perform such tests in order to find out beforehand whether they will need specific attention. In some rare cases, doctors can prescribe additional vitamins and medication to the mother so that the condition in the baby is treated or improved before birth.

Knowledge Based

Instead of believing in Old Wives’ tales, most modern parents read up on baby care so they are much better prepared to handle a baby on their own by the time the mother gives birth. They will read child development and psychology books, they will read parenting advice, dietary plans and more than anything else, they will not neglect themselves, because an informed parent understands that when the mother especially isn’t stressed or overtired, the bay benefits as well.
