3 Ways To Connect With Your Partner Before The Baby Arrives

· · Comments
Introducing a new baby to your family unit takes up a lot of time and effort. You are looking forward to sleepless nights, midnight feedings, and a schedule built around doctor’s appointments and childcare. That is why it is important to solidify your relationship with your partner before your whole world changes. 

Below are three ways that you and your partner can reconnect before welcoming a new family member. Spend the time now and communicate just how much your partner and future co-parent means to you. It will be worth it.

  1. Go on a date night and celebrate with some “champagne”. You may not be able to drink while pregnant, but with some candles, take-out, and a bottle of sparkling grape juice you will certainly get a buzz on. Plan out a night with your partner in which you put away phones and media, and just romance one another. Nothing beats a good date night.

  2. Share stories about your own childhoods, and commit to recreating the happy moments. This can be done in so many ways. You can discuss your childhoods over an old photo album, while building a vision board, or just through some old fashioned conversation. By discussing the things that are important to each of you, you can create and plan for the memories you want to build as a new family. This will help you to both feel more connected as partners, and more prepared to be parents.

  3. Consider a baby-moon! When you have children, couple-only vacations will likely become a thing of the past. Have one last hurrah together by taking a quick trip, just the two of you. It will be relaxing and rejuvenating, and a great opportunity to enjoy one another’s company.

Once the baby arrives, you will be grateful that you took the time to connect as a couple. It will make you a stronger family.
