Most people believe that it is given that the husband and wife relationship after the baby comes undergoes a metamorphosis. It therefore becomes very important to communicate with your partner during your pregnancy. Open communication allows the both of you to be clear about the expectations from one another when it comes to parenting. If you are second time parents, you already know one another as parents, but still open communication is necessary.

Both of you have come from different family cultures and have had different styles of upbringing, therefore both of you have different opinions on how your child will be brought up. Talk to one another and reach a consensus on how you will divide roles.

Yet, reality is always different and it may always never work out as planned and talked about.

These are things that might happen in a husband and wife relationship after baby:

  • You will feel a little blue after your baby is born and your husband may feel confused on why you may feel so. This confusion can lead to a conflict if not talked about. Talk to one another and understand that it is very common to feel so.
  • Your husband will feel a little left out because everyone shows more interest in your recovery and the baby’s recovery.
  • In some cases, there might be intervention from the family members regarding your decisions taken for the child, leaving your husband caught in the middle. Talk about this to one another and reach an agreement on what should be done in such a situation.
  • Talk to your husband about the time it is going to take you to resume your sexual life. Don’t leave him guessing. If nothing, just cuddling, kissing and one on one time with your husband should erase away all the tensions and conflicts between the two of you.
  • Another issue which might crop up between the two of you could be the loss of one income (if you were working), and increasing expenditure.
  • Avoid criticism or blame. Understand the reason behind a particular decision.
  • Even if you don’t agree with one another, refrain from making it known on a public platform. Express it to one another in private and discuss them.
