Communication is important
Communication between mothers and fathers is important.
Each needs the moral support of the other during the
adjustment to this major change in their lives. They need
each other as a safe place to talk about concerns, joys and
maybe even anger. Sometimes parents find they need to
schedule a time for talking. In the early weeks, mother is
recuperating from birth and both parents are probably
fatigued from having their sleep interrupted. Normal
routines are disrupted, things donít get done easily and
efficiently while caring for a baby.
