Men's Guide to Birth

Your First Baby? Tips And Advice For All Parents.

If you are an expectant parent, remember that it is not necessary to spend obscene amounts of money on furnishing your nursery. You can find many items that you will need to furnish your nursery from cribs, to sheets at department stores for a fraction of the price, without sacrificing quality. Family and friends also serve as a great resource for gently used items.

Even though time with your kids is important, it is also important to make time for yourself. Spending time on your own doing the things that you enjoy allows you to maintain your own sense of individuality.

Agreeing on a Birth Plan

QUESTION

My partner wants a hospital birth complete with an OB/GYN. My preference is a home birth with a midwife but I was willing to compromise on using a birth center. He's not budging.

What are some ways that I can help him move away from this sterile birth experience to one that I'm more comfortable with other than just telling him "I'm not doing it!" and creating another war?

I get that is how his sisters and friends' wives delivered but this is MY birth experience, too!

Partner Afraid to Attend the Birth

Being Dad Team's picture

My husband doesn't think he can handle being in the room when I have the baby. Pain is not something that he does well with and the sight of blood makes him freak. Is it hopeless to think that he can overcome this?

My family and friends all are giving us both a hard time about this as otherwise they view him being "unsupportive." I’d like to give him the benefit of a doubt as this is the way he's been as long as I've known him (10 years!)

Thanks for the help!
