You may sometimes feel your own needs are being overlooked as you devote yourself entirely to your baby. At other times she will bring you great joy, giving you a boost of energy and making you proud of her and yourself.
When you feel the need, treat yourself to a special outing or a day off with your partner. Continue to share your favourite activities and make plans together. Enjoy yourselves!
Communication is key to nurturing your relationship as a couple. Pregnancy and the birth of a child bring big changes and require both parents to adapt. Talking about your feelings, your worries, and your happiness during this intense period can help keep you close.
If you’re a single parent, it’s also very important to take care of yourself. A nice hot bath, a meal with friends, or a special outing can be a wonderful break.
