Parenting is a long journey which begins with a woman becoming pregnant. It won’t be unfair to say that between a man and wife, it is the wife who shares the major load of this life changing experience. There is so much that changes in her life. Those 9 months of carrying and nurturing a new life in her being are not easy and can drain her physically and emotionally too. While the first trimester is spent battling fatigue, morning sickness and many hormonal changes, the last one is full of worries regarding childbirth (normal or c section) and life beyond that. It is a known fact that while earlier there were joint families and experienced people around to support a pregnant lady in the family, today most of the couples stay in nuclear set ups where support is very little or absent.
Thus, it is natural and imperative that a pregnant woman seeks her husband’s support and love during this time. A supportive husband makes his wife’s pregnancy easier. This not only helps in strengthening their bond and relationship in a better way but also prepares them to shoulder a very big responsibly together in future.
So, how can a husband help his wife during pregnancy? Below are 5 simple things which he can do.
Thus, these are 5 ways which I could think of and the ways in which my husband supported me while I was pregnant. Living through this experience together can be made very special. A little effort on the husband’s part can really create a world of difference for an expecting wife and help making these beautiful yet taxing moments memorable for a life time.
