Knowledge is power.: The more you know about how to parent, the less anxious you are likely to be. Check into parenting classes in your area.

If you are that : Nervous about becoming a parent, in addition to parenting classes, i would suggest considering psychotherapy. Tell the therapist how you are feeling, they will help you sort out why you are so fearful about becoming a parent and be there as a support once you have the baby as well.
