- Birth & babies: the father's role
The presence of the father at the birth of his child is the norm these days, but how easy is it really for dads to get involved?

A man doesn't see the arrival of his child in the same way as a woman does. The mother's physical and instinctive emotional ties to her baby are sometimes difficult to transfer to the father.

Heer's how to involve your partner throughout your nine months of pregnancy, value his role in your baby's life, focus on rebalancing your relationship and leave him time to grow into his new role. All this is essential for a good father-baby bond.
