My partner is breastfeeding, so what can I do to help?
The main thing you can do is be supportive. If this is something you have chosen to do, then it is going to take the pair of you to make it succeed. Breast feeding your child is not easy and will also be quite tiring. Lots of women give up in the first 6 weeks, simply because they do not get they support they need. So here is what you can do:-)
When can we have sex again after the birth of our baby?
Probably the most commonly asked question, and also at the root of much of stress between couples. Sorry guys but there is only one answer to this, when she is ready. This may be 6 weeks it may be 6 months or even longer. Putting pressure on her is not going to help or speed things up.
What should I do if my partner doesnt like our midwife at the birth?
You are perfectly entitled to ask for a different midwife. Do it with as little fuss as possible. Try and find a way to leave the room and go and politely discuss the problem and ask for a different midwife. It is important that the isnt unnecassary emotions in the room. Remeber though that you are perfectly entitled to as for this change.
