Pregnancy starts as a new phase in the life of a woman. It is a change, which even if accepted cannot be fully prepared for. Every pregnancy is different and unique. However, there is one thing common in all pregnancies—all moms need the care and support while they are dealing with physical and mental pressures and pains.
Partners, now is the time you must support your better halves through her daily pregnancy challenges in small but significant ways. Here is why you must go a step ahead for your lady love and the baby she is carrying.
1. To Provide Her With Emotional Support
The raging pregnancy hormones can play havoc in a woman’s life. It may seem crazy but she really needs you right at that moment when you feel she is behaving awkward. She may seem terribly sad because you ate the last piece of pizza instead of offering it to her. She might even cry out of frustration or discomfort. Talk to her—tell her she is even more special now carrying the miracle of your lives. Isn’t she the harbinger of happiness for both of you? Let her know!
2. Because She Needs Physical Support Too
When she is dealing with all those bodily changes, take charge and let her take the back seat. Chores like cooking and cleaning are easy tasks, to begin with. But, what can you do for her? A foot massage could feel blissful when the baby is weighing her down. A back massage could soothe her pain. Think on how to relieve her of the burden of too much physical work that can exhaust her.
3. Care And Attention Are Must
It is not just about your partner’s well-being, but baby health care as well. If your partner is physically stressed, the baby could also be in the same state. Ensure that she is having a proper diet, is eating on time and getting enough rest. Encourage her for yoga or prenatal classes to keep her active. Accompany her to the doctor—make sure her pregnancy period is a healthy and happy one.
