Family planning often means financial planning …
… and quite likely, a change in the way you see your finances.
If you’re expecting a new child, you’ll want to consider any loss of income that will occur during and after pregnancy. (Maternity leave policies can vary, so be sure to review your company’s policy in advance.) Another consideration is the cost of childcare. Study your daycare options early, and plan beforehand. Your baby’s food, clothing, and especially diaper costs will also increase your household expenditures, and it’s wise to plan for “unforeseen expenses” as well.
Finally, you’ll want to consider your baby’s future. Education planning can never start “too early” – in fact, you can actually start planning for college even before a child is born.
Ask many financial analysts, and they’ll tell you a home is a family’s biggest investment … but can any material investment compare to the investment we make in our children?
Is there ever an investment more valuable?
