5 Quick Tips: How Men can Support their Significant Other
As a father of two, Sean understands the importance of preparation to support your significant other while they are going through their pregnancy. Oftentimes, it can be difficult for your significant other due to their bodies continually changing both physically and hormonally throughout pregnancy. Here are a couple of tips that Sean has learned through his experience of being a father and supporting his significant other.
Tip #1: Educate yourself
Educate yourself: Research the changes to expect from your significant other during her
pregnancy. Understand the different trimesters and how these affect her.
Tip #2: Be Flexible
Your significant other will go through different mood changes and you must
be understanding and kind through it all.
Tip #3: Enjoy Planning the Birth with Her
Enjoy Planning the Birth with Her: Show excitement in the baby’s upcoming birth and all
the decisions that are included under that umbrella.
Tip #4: Take up Responsibilities
Clean the dishes, sweep and vacuum without being asked. Do the things you aren’t used to doing, and it will make your significant other’s life easier as well as help her see that you care about her and the baby.
Tip #5: Listen to Her
It is very important for your significant other to know she can express what she is feeling during the pregnancy without being judged. Listen without telling her solutions on how to “fix” her feelings.
