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.
