Pregnancy is an emotional time for couples. Couples who share their expectations, excitement and fears about having a child will forge deeper bonds of understanding to sustain them through the experience. Couples who attune their desires for parenthood are more mentally ready for the new phase of their life and are less likely to resent the sacrifices and compromises that may be demanded.
Pregnancy is a journey of discovery. The physical and emotional changes taking place in the body can be exacting and stressful. The responsibility of the husband is to understand these various changes in the pregnant woman and help her develop a positive response system which is critical for the baby’s optimum development.
