Fatherhood is Serious Business

Becoming a father is scary and exciting at the same time. Often dads feel disconnected from the entire pregnancy process because they are not the one whose body is changing, and they may feel uncomfortable talking about it with their friends.

Dads often feel left out of the whole build up to delivery, and are nervous about what to do when baby is here. It helps to make dad feel more included if you give him a gift, and a book to learn from.

New dads often do not worry about the same things as new moms. Moms are consumed with all of the changes that are happening to their body, while dads may be more worried about financial needs.

There are several things a dad-to-be can do to make the nine months of pregnancy go smoothly for his partner and himself, as well to ease himself into the dramatic new role he will playing once the baby is born. Here are some helpful tips for men about to become new fathers.

Expect physical and emotional changes.

Be prepared to see your partner experiencing bouts of nausea and morning sickness, disgust at foods she may have formerly loved, and even middle of the night cravings for bizarre foods.

Think about how you are going to prepare for the baby financially, not only now , but in the future.

Don’t be surprised if you feel jealous towards the pregnancy or the new baby.

Get involved in the planning for the new baby, including the nursery.

Take childbirth classes with your partner to alleviate nervousness about the birth.

Don’t forget that dad is an important part of the entire childbirth process, and let him know he still matters while the primary focus is on baby.
