Congratulations, you are going to be a dad!  This is an exciting time for you and your partner, but it can feel like there is not much you can do.  This section will tell you all about what is happening to your partner and your baby throughout pregnancy.  Did you know that dads also go through hormonal changes during their partner’s pregnancy (as long as you live with her) and also through the birth and the first 12 weeks of becoming a dad?  Something important to look out for is antenatal depression; this is one of the unexpected parts of pregnancy that so many parents are not aware of.  Have a look at our information to see what your partner might be feeling, how to help her, and who to contact if she needs help.
