Pregnancy is a huge time in a couple’s life, especially when it’s their first baby. So many things could change as a result of the woman being pregnant and there are certain things the man ought to do that would help steer the marriage in the right direction.
Research has shown that new mums have better pregnancy experience when the dad is actively involved. So what can a man do to become more active during his wife pregnancy?
1. HELP WITH THE CHORES
I know most men wouldn’t like to hear this, but there is hardly a better way to help your wife at this time than doing some chores. A woman’s hormonal frustration is at its peak when she’s pregnant. Leaving her to do the chores would only heighten her frustration. Besides her frustration, helping with the chores would ease off some burdens.
If there is any time a woman craves her man’s time and attention the most, it is when she’s pregnant. Listen to her, give her every attention you can, and by doing this, you would help her through the journey of giving birth.
3. GO TO DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENT WITH HER
Going with her to see the doctor would help pass a message that you are there for her, and she would definitely need your company. She would definitely need this, especially when it’s her first pregnancy.
4. BE PATIENT
Only a patient man can handle a pregnant woman. Be extremely patient with her and never take some things that come out of her mouth personal — truth is, she didn’t even mean it.
5. TELL HER SHE’S BEAUTIFUL
A lot of women feel that pregnancy makes them less appealing and less attractive. Let her know she’s still the most beautiful woman in your life. This would be a much-needed boost.
6. BE ROMANTIC
The fact that she’s pregnant doesn’t mean you would stop being romantic. Shower her with love, take her out on dates, say sweet things to her, get her gifts — the key thing is getting her to feel loved.
7. LEARN TO ADJUST
So many things about a woman’s attitude changes when she’s pregnant and with each stage of the pregnancy; learn to adjust to her new state of mind — this would help a lot.
8. A MASSAGE WOULD HELP
There might never be anyone who would love a massage than a pregnant woman. Ask her if she would love a massage and where she needs a massage. This would help provide a relief.
A lot of men act like pregnancy is for the woman alone, but this is a bit unfair and harsh — after all, it’s both your baby.
Learn to make her happy at this point that she needs you most.
