Childbirth: what a father can do

Discussions about preparing for childbirth tend to center around the expectant mother's role, but there is much that a father can do to be of help. His role is of great importance. Many husbands tell of real joy and satisfaction that have come from active, prayerful participation in supporting their wives as they joined together in making ready for the new baby.

Support is a fundamental element in considering what a father can do. As in any other worthwhile activity, one will find his supportive efforts lifted beyond mere human abilities through the inspired prayer he brings to the situation. His spiritual understanding and steadfast communion with God add a measure of quiet strength to the home atmosphere.
