Pregnancy is a woman’s job.
Mom feels the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 kick; she bonds; she gives 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡. Dad is an outsider. Or at least that’s how he often feels. However, the truth is that the father has a key role – both before the appearance of the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 and during the 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡. With his presence in the delivery room, the father gives his beloved an incredible feeling. Which even the most experienced doula is not able to convey to the woman in labor. The man provides the bond with oxytocin, which the woman desperately needs during labor.
Any doula can teach dad about the 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡 process from A to Z, so he can even become the protagonist and deliver his 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦. Something similar happens to a family that has been struggling with infertility for many years.
However, after another in vitro test, a miracle happens, and finally the characters we are going to tell you about understand that they are expecting a 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦.
When the father realizes that he can deliver his own 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥 himself, his eyes light up with happiness.
At 39 years old, She realizes that motherhood cannot wait any longer; opportunities are diminishing, reproductive health is experiencing changes, and the biological clock is ticking. She and He decide to give parenthood one last chance. And here, a huge victory, they will soon be Mom and Dad. Their lives were changing; the most difficult challenge was ahead of them – the 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡 of a 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦, but not only the 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡 of them as a father and mother.
The closer the exciting moment is, the more Dad realizes that he wants to witness it. And this is happening. With the help, of course, of their trusty doula.
A few months pass, and the pregnant woman’s water ʙʀᴇᴀᴋs. She, the dad, and the doula rush to the hospital; contractions, active full-force labor, and 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 cries ensue. Dad is trained, ready, and dedicated to his mission, and he is present with love and strength in the process. The mother is strong, with an incredible will. Pain𝓀𝒾𝓁𝓁ers She does not want to take.
There comes a time when the father feels exhausted and unable to give his partner more and more of his strength, attention, insomnia, and emotional support. Then the doula whispers in his ear, “This is the taste of fatherhood!” A wide smile appears on his face.
He already knows what it’s like to stay awake all night worrying about a teething 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦, how difficult it is to comfort a crying little one suffering from colic, how much fear can enter your heart when a little one becomes ill…Taco is always there – gives love, supports, helps, protects, and loves.
During 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡, the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 is in the arms of its father. Exciting, sʜᴏᴄᴋɪɴɢ, and such a powerful moment… A long journey, hardships, years of struggle with ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ, and now you are holding your 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥 – yes, the emotion cannot be expressed in words.
And the dad… The dad says that at first he wasn’t sure if he even wanted to attend the 𝐛𝐢𝐫𝐭𝐡 to cut the cord, but when the moment came, he realized that there was nothing he wanted more than that – yes ” “freaks” his own 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥 with his bare hands. He takes the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 and places it on the mother’s chest, at which point He becomes a father. Unbelievable – the catch of a lifetime.
In a personal Facebook post, he shared: “I wasn’t even planning to watch, but I was told I could be there and hand the 𝑏𝑎𝑏𝑦 to my wife, then my instincts kicked in, and it turned out to be the best thing I’ve ever done.”
