No that by itself does not make you unfit to be a mother but it does mean that you will need to learn how to be a good mother. There is no rule book but you do have to follow a few rules on how to be a Mother. The most important thing to remember is that now you have a child that is totally depended on you for everything. Food, shelter, medicne, everything from the shoes on its feet to the toys that they play with. They must right now come first. Once you figure that out the rest is easy to learn. Good luck
