Pregnancy starts a new phase of your relationship with your partner.
You can expect a natural shift in roles. It's likely that you will have less time to pay attention to each other. And your expectations of each other may change.
For many couples, pregnancy is an exciting time of change. But it's also a time of stress and new challenges. Many couples find that
pregnancy brings worries about money and emotions that they didn't expect. Some couples find it useful to see a counselor before or after the
birth. It helps them make a healthy transition from "couple" to "family" or from
"family" to "larger family."
