A father is often confused on what he should do for his wife to make her happy during pregnancy and fulfill his role during pregnancy. So here we have put down 21 things an expectant father should do for his pregnant wife.

#1
First off, read about the symptoms she is or will go through during this week and tell her what she can do to make herself more comfortable. In fact, if you can, do some of them yourself. This will show CARE.

    Interesting list! I’m sure there are many men who forget that this is a very challenging time, especially with the raging hormones and mood swings. But it’s a beautiful time and celebrating this is always a great idea! Doesn’t even have to be anything store bought – little notes left here and there go a long way! Thanks for sharing

    These are so sweet and took me back to my pregnancy. My husband was WONDERFUL! He even said he misses me being pregnant because he loved taking care of me for once. I was so sick so I didn’t do much during my pregnancy and he learned how to cook a few meals that he will do even now. Having a supportive partner really does make a difference and now he’s the best dad.
