Keeping Cool Under Pressure

Updated: Aug 10, 2023

Pregnancy is tough. Not only for the women that are in the process of having their bodies completely transformed and pumped with hormones but for their husbands and partners as well. Often when your significant other is pregnant and you’re having a difficult time dealing with the stress of becoming a father, you can feel like a burden opening up to them about it. If you don’t have a proper support system in place, these emotions can bottle up and turn into something else entirely.

Having a baby is scary, but it’s important for men to recognize when they have these emotions and to express them in a healthy way. Whether that’s hanging out with the boys, going to the gym, or opening up to your partner – it’s crucial to have an outlet. Not a single one of us wants to be the dad that loses his cool, and I’m sure you don’t want to set that example for your kids – I know I don’t. It’s important to teach your little ones that it’s okay to have big feelings and it’s how you handle them that matters the most. By setting a good example for your children you’re making a good foundation for them to start their life off on the right foot.

It’s time to ditch the “dumb grumpy dad” stereotype and showcase to our partners, along with the rest of the world, that men can be in touch with their feelings. Take the time to ask your partner how they’re doing, be understanding of their situation, and remember – at the end of the day she’s the one bringing your beautiful child into the world, so we could probably be a little more empathetic and kind.
