Spend time with your partner

10. Spend time with your partner

Try to get some quality time together with your partner, whether it’s a night out for a meal or a weekend away. "Having a new baby is a time of huge change for relationships, so spend some time together," says Fiona.

Fiona also suggests that you take time out to each talk about and reflect on how you were brought up. Share your views on parenting with your partner for example – plus other, more practical things too such as which nappies and wipes you’re thinking of using. "Sharing your thoughts will help you both be a bit more prepared for what will be an intense time and you will come into it as equals," she says.
