Here are a bunch of things every hubby needs to take care of:
1.Comfort is everything
When a woman becomes a mother, she is undergoing a lot of changes in her body, due to which she is unable to do work. So instead of saying something to her, you can help her ease on the schedule and make adjustments yourself! Sometimes women feel depressed even during pregnancy, so being a good husband, it is your responsibility to keep your wife as happy as possible and avoid putting any pressure on her.
2.Teamwork is the best
Try to help your wife whenever possible. The initial days of pregnancy are very risky for a woman as it could lead to miscarriage. Therefore, you need to ensure that your wife should not lift anything heavy. By sharing her small responsibilities, make her realize that she’s not alone and you are all set to share her responsibilities.
3.Understand the mood swings
During pregnancy, there are not only physical changes but also cognitive (mental) changes. Suddenly, the feelings of responsibility kick in and can put your wife in tension too! These result in mood swings, which are normal. You can see your ife changing from a laughing outburst to sudden anger and rage. It can be a little discomforting but with patience and right mindset of a hubby, mood swings can be dealt with ease!
4.Take special care of food
Eating at the time of pregnancy has a special effect on both mother and child. During this time, there is a lot of change in a woman’s taste. Suddenly she will have cravings for eating something sour or sweet like ice-cream!
Therefore, you should take special care of their food needs as she can also eat healthy and tasty food
5.Keep her away from tension and keep them happy
At the time of pregnancy, a woman goes through many physical and mental changes, so do not talk about any tension in front of her. Apart from this, you should also tell the family that they should not create any kind of stressful environment. Make the most of the positive atmosphere, and if possible, take her out of the house, show her a movie or even take her to her favourite places.
6.Give love to the wife and praise her
During pregnancy, a woman’s body changes greatly, not only internal but also external changes. They feel that they are getting fat and they are not looking good, so give your wife more love, pamper her and praise her. Remove their illusions, make them realize that they are still as beautiful as before and you still love them as before.
Apart from all this, keep in mind that your wife has to go to the doctor sometimes. You should always go with her for her regular check-up, especially when she has to take the injections! Keep a track of which medicine to take when, and if your wife is allergic to something else, then keep this in mind too.
8.Walking is the best
A practical exercise is essential during pregnancy, so take your wife early in the morning for a walk. Sometimes the woman seems to wander in the open air but, she feels uneasy sometimes, so she does not get out. Try to motivate her and take her out. Make them believe that you are with her and talk about good things.
Apart from all this, many other small things like – understand her problems, planning ahead, decorate the house with a new member happy, go shopping and listen to her when she speaks. Assure her that you are fully prepared to share this responsibility with her and establish a happy family!
