Becoming a father is one of the most exciting things that will
happen in your life. All of a sudden you are responsible for the
beginning of a new person, a very special person who will grow up
in this world looking to you for answers, and needing a fatherly
influence. This is a huge responsibility but it is also a very
rewarding and fun one!
As the initial excitement wears off it is possible for your
emotions to be overlooked or underestimated. You are an essential
part of your baby's life and it is important for you to keep up the
communication with your partner. Keep involved in the planning
process and attend classes with your partner. Allow your baby to
play as big a part of your life as possible.
The Dad's section isn't just for Dad's, it is for partners
wanting to know and understand what fathers-to-be and fathers are
going through during this time also.
If you're planning to become a father you may want to check out
the planning pages.
Or likewise if your partner is expecting, the pregnancy pages are full of
useful information for mums and dad's alike.
