How Dads can best support their partners postpartum

As the father of a newborn, it’s important to be supportive of your wife as she goes through the postpartum period. Here are some tips on how you can best support her during this time:

1. Be patient and understanding. Your wife is going through a lot of changes and she may be feeling overwhelmed. It’s important to be patient and understand that she may not be herself during this time.

2. Help out around the house. She’s probably exhausted from taking care of the baby and may not have the energy to do much around the house. Offer to help out with household chores so she can focus on taking care of the baby.

3. Be a shoulder to lean on. She may be feeling emotional and may need someone to talk to. Be there for her and listen to what she has to say.

4. Offer to take over baby duties. She may need a break from time to time. Offer to take over feedings, diapers changes, and reading stories to your baby so she can have some time to herself.

5. Get her a gift. A small gesture like a gift can go a long way. It shows that you care and are thinking of her.
