Co-parent

You’ve probably noticed your partner feeling less energetic and that she has a need to take a calmer approach.

Best laid plans and everything else will have to come secondary to the pregnancy with even the most basic task proving too challenging for your partner. This is where you come in. This is “your time to shine,” as even the most mundane tasks such as cooking and cleaning may feel superhuman for your worn-out partner.

With the pregnancy taking its toll on your partner, her mood may also take a downswing, which may also lead to feelings of uncertainty and hesitancy about the baby. It’s in moments like these that you need to remember the mantra…"It’s all completely normal!" Perhaps you could lighten the mood with small surprises your partner might appreciate to remind her she is doing fine and you love her as she is.
