As a dad-to-be, understanding the rollercoaster of emotions and physical changes that mothers undergo during pregnancy is essential. Compassionate support can make a world of difference. Here are some practical steps you can take:

  • Communicate Openly: Keep the lines of communication with your partner open. Ask about their needs, listen actively, and validate their feelings.
