Before babies there was a partnership in which you and your partner were both nurtured and each other’s top priority. Once the babies arrive you may find that they are the only ones getting nurtured! This is a pitfall that is difficult to avoid. There are going to be sacrifices that you and your partner are both going to have to make that you won’t expect. Some advice: recognize that this will probably be the case for several months and try to help each other as much as possible. Your new bond is that of “team parent” and this can strengthen your relationship in ways you can’t foresee. It’s something to go on when you don’t seem to have any time for each other in the first few months. Try to keep your sense of humour intact and everything should be fine.
