While you're taking time to bond with your new little bundle of joy, don't forget about your wife! Here are some tips from Hilling on connecting with your wife throughout pregnancy and beyond:
Call your wife from work occasionally. Offer her words of comfort or just have a conversation with her. Remind her how excited you feel for her and you in becoming/being parents.
Give her permission to call you at work. She may not call you but the fact that she knows she has your permission will give her great comfort in knowing that you still love her and think about her.
Send your wife a "Love You" or "Mother's Day" card in the mail, either to your house or her place of work. You could also ask relatives and friends to send your wife a "Mother's Day" card. You could also write a love letter!
Take your wife out for a lunch date.
Show up to her place of work with a bouquet of flowers.
Attend the prenatal appointments with her. Arrange this ahead of time with your employer.
Give her massages.
Say the words "I love you."
