Dads vs partners
As childbirth educators, we all strive to use inclusive language. So for most of us, "partners" "labor support team" have replaced "dads". Every once in a while however I hear comments that fathers/dads feel their role is different than a partner. They are changing their role and becoming a father. They feel their role in the baby's life is different than someone who will not be involved in parenting this child for the next 18+ years.
How do you address this in your childbirth classes?
