In brief: Yes

It is natural for a mother and father to bond with their infant unless there is a condition of the mother or infant that interferes such as post partum pain, post partum depression, or a sick newborn.
If you have concerns, make them known to your OB or pediatrician.

In brief: My guess, yes.

Childbirth is a wonderful time.
Look forward to your new arrival. I think the rest (bonding) will take care of itself.
