Being a mother is such a fulfilling and rewarding role and one of the most important responsibilities you will ever have.
Planning for a child with your partner will help you both cope with pregnancy and parenting, whether you're new to parenting or already have children.
During pregnancy you will need a lot of love and support, as hormone levels play havock with your body and your emotions. Keeping your partner informed of what's happening to your body, how you're feeling and letting him know your thoughts will really help him to feel part of your pregnancy.
Often partners can feel a little left out simply because they are not the ones that are pregnant, so providing love and support and just being there for you can help contribute to being pregnant. Although you might be riding an emotional roller coaster, it is important that you help your partner feel involved and appreciated for the efforts he makes, as you will both need each others support when your baby arrives.
