1. What Babies Learn Before They’re Born: Annie Murphy Paul
We have been told zillion time that our lifestyle affects our baby who is being developed inside. How you give birth also affects their microbiome and their health conditions in life. Sometimes we don’t have control over these things but when you understand how your lifestyle, the way you spend your nine months impacts your baby then it may lead to a greater determination to take good care of yourself.
Annie Murphy Paul describes some real-life cases that can affect a child’s health before they are born.
They also learn to taste around the 7th month. The flavors the woman eats are picked up by the amniotic fluid and are swallowed by the fetus. Because they’re comfortable with these tastes, they prefer these flavors once they’re born.
2. Why fathers Should be Present at Birth
It’s very important for a father to be a part of the family and get involved in their kid’s upbringing. In families, where the father is not that involved, have troubles, kids are not that emotionally stable and strong.
Even the soon to be fathers are ignored while the mother is pregnant, all the attention is towards the mother but you will be surprised to know that even the father goes through a lot of anxiety, stress, and fear. They are present at the checkups, birth classes and their concerns must be addressed carefully.
In some cases even they go through Post Partum Depression which sometimes is overlooked or denied.
Lewis asserts that it’s crucial for us to understand the role fathers play during pregnancy and throughout a child’s life — and give them the support they need too.
