Think back to how you saw your dad – and be even more of the role model who was always there, always stable and always lovingly conscientious. Dads in children’s lives are foundations for stable futures.
Children will give you so much more than you feel you have had to give within yourself – enjoy. Binding closely to mum and baby will ensure life is easy. Please find yourself a copy of What Dads Can Do as there is so much that you can change in the pregnancy, before hand s, in birthing and all through the rest of your life by following a different medical model and common sense – all found in this practical easy to use ‘glove box manual’ style step by step guide to handling a woman’s body with loving grace.
