While we all wish for a trouble-free pregnancy and birth (and 80% are normal and uncomplicated), problems do arise, from miscarriage to complications in the delivery room. This section covers topics from a guide on labour to important legal information, and as a dad it’s important you understand the various aspects of pregnancy in the run-up to your child’s birth. Month by month, your unborn son or daughter is changing and if you don’t know what’s happening when, you’ll miss something. This section includes many articles to help you prepare well when expecting a child, and importantly advice on how to support your wife/partner in this time.
