You partner might not always know how to help you during your pregnancy. You’re the one doing all the work but it doesn’t mean they can’t do a few things to help you. They just need help figuring out what they can do for you.
Pregnancy doesn’t only affect a woman physically, but it can have a major impact mentally as well. Lend your partner your ear and make sure you are there to listen to them. Don’t be afraid to ask how they are doing, sometimes just asking them can brighten their day and lets them know you care.
By going to her doctor appointments lets her know you are trying to be as involved as you can be. If she hasn’t already, you can suggest going to birthing classes like lamaze or baby CPR classes, something you can do together. She will appreciate the initiative and it will benefit both of you in the long run.
Being able to understand what your partner is going through will make things less frustrating. Knowing week by week what size the baby is or symptoms or what’s to come with the birth, will connect you with what’s going on even though it’s not in your body. Download an app or read a few books. There is information at your fingertips!
Sometimes it’s the little things, such as having a bath ready for when she comes home or rubbing her feet. Light a few candles and create a calming environment for her. Check out some ideas on how you can help her relax here.
Before you know it, it won’t just be the two of you! Pregnancy photoshoots aren’t just for the mom, you can get involved and be in some of the photos. Have a lazy morning, take the weekend or even have a short holiday, and spend some quality time together.
