Pregnancy, the birth period and the weeks there after can all be very stressful, for the mother father and extended family. It is a time of huge adjustment.
For the mother she is changing her identity and taking on a whole new role and responsibility. As a new family unit, all the relational dynamics change, and this can make fathers feel excluded.
In the case of a preterm birth, the medical focus is on the baby, and the parents often get forgotten. Even full term babies may have severe problems that can make it difficult for parents to cope.
Whatever the situation, Jill can come alongside parents and provide empathetic support, with a deeper understanding of the medical problems on one hand, and the reality of being a parent on the other.
