This is the article every new mum wishes their husband would 'chance upon'.

When a new daddy leaves the hospital with his cherub in arm, what does he hope for? Probably someone to tell him how to deal with the A, B and Cs of parenting.

But what he really needs is a manual on how to deal with his wife. The new mummy. A.k.a, the “new wife”.

Keeping that in mind, I’ve come up with a list of things every single husband on earth should know after his beloved wife turns into a mother.

Men, this one’s for you.


#1 She feels ugly

Your wife has put on a ton of weight, her belly was stretched to the limit (causing stretch marks)- she’s upset about it all.

What can you do? Always find time to praise her. Tell her she’s as beautiful as the child she’s created with you. And assure her that her body will go back to how it was, in time.

#2 She is terrified

This parenting thing is all so new to her. She feels like she’s being put to the test. She’s also evaluating herself. People are throwing opinions at her, and this can be overwhelming.

Be by her side always, cheer her on, help her out and remind her that you guys are a team. Tell her she’s the best mother you could have picked for your kid.
