Practical strategies, checklists, and planning tools to help couples navigate the pregnancy, childbirth, and newborn stages together

Preparing for the birth of your child is a life-changing experience, but it doesn’t have to be an overwhelming one. Couples can tackle everything that needs to get done if they work together as a team, all while setting the foundation for a strong partnership that carries them through the next stage as first-time parents. The Couples' Pregnancy Guide offers supportive advice, strategies, and checklists couples need to create a plan that works for their unique relationship. There’s no script for how things will go in pregnancy, but you can get through it with confidence and optimism when you do it together.  
The Couples' Pregnancy Guide features: 
A month-by-month breakdown of discussion-worthy topics, from prenatal screenings and parental leave to childcare options and birth plans 
Guidance on how to support your partner to improve communication, strengthen emotional attunement, and lay the groundwork for a strong parenting team  
Checklists and worksheets to share responsibilities and empower non-birthing partners, and brainstorm solutions when joint decisions are particularly tricky 
Practical advice for challenges like easing tight finances, moving past communication impasses, and advocating for yourself in medical settings
