If you’re in a relationship, being pregnant can create new challenges as well as bring you closer. Below, find out how other parents found a sense of wellbeing by making sure they were eating, sleeping and living right.
‘My husband is really excited and has been ever since we found out. It's really special how it brings us so close together, just sort of envisioning what our life is going to be like. He's really been really protective of me. And I quite like that. He does so much as well and is really involved.’
Molly and Jak,
‘Be prepared to get intimate with your partner in ways you never thought you would. You have to be very close. Jak had to help me do all sorts. I’m not going to go into specifics, but it’s a different kind of intimacy!’
Courtney and Sarah
‘There’s always going to be challenges and they can put pressure on the relationship. But we realised that those challenges were making us who we were going to be as parents.’
Chris and Claire
from West Sussex, UK
‘From my point of view, as the one who isn’t pregnant, it’s important to pay attention, notice the changes and try to share that together with Claire.’
Claire and Vincenzo
‘I think this has brought us closer together. Claire is usually very independent. Being pregnant, she needs help with lots of things, especially when she’s tired (which is a lot) or now that she can’t reach her feet to tie her shoe laces. I like looking after her.’
