Changes that may occur together with the decision to get pregnant may threat the harmony of the couple. Changes that occur in pregnancy stages and birth will bring many difficulties, threats and stresses to your life. This is an inevitable process and it is very natural. What is important here is that the couple can effectively deal with these new stress factors.
In a healthy relationship, the couple can find ways to handle effectively with these stress factors and produce solutions. Keep in mind that the important thing is not to encounter changes, stresses and threats, the importing thing is to find out how to deal with them.
When couples discussing with each other, they must remember that both sides have undergone changes in their lives and both sides try to find out how to deal with these changes.
It is useful to learn in advance about the new changes that are waiting for you, to predict how can you produce solutions. For this, you can get information from some books written for parents, the experiences of couples of your age who have had children before you, your family doctor, child development specialist and developmental psychologists.
The most important thing to pay attention to when getting information is to obtain information from many sources and reliability of that sources. At the same time, the information obtained should be shared between couples. Our age is the information and communication age. People are trying to learn about everything and act within their information. This is a nice thing, of course, but when the subject is a baby, this strategy is incomplete. You should approach your baby not only with knowledge, but also with your feelings, your intuition, your perceptions.
Nature has equipped people with emotional and motivational systems to perceive the needs of their children. These feelings and intuitions are important for the special communication between you and your baby.
In time, when your baby cries, you will begin to understand the cause by yourself and these estimates will be very accurate. In short, trust your intuition about your baby.
