Stepping back and allowing Dad to step up

Stepping back and allowing Dad to step up

by Brooke Meyer, Owner Bouncing Back from Birth

For 9 long months as I grew my babe I, unconsciously, began my transition into motherhood. And although I had been teetering on the edge of becoming Mum it wasn’t until 6:48am August 6 2014, that I unlike my husband had to cross the threshold and jump - feet first, no looking down, fingers crossed into the deep unknown depths of parenthood.

This is the story of how he eventually jumped in after me, or more accurately how I gently coaxed him to the edge and then with a wicked gleeful cackle pulled him in.

But first, know that my husband fell deeply in love with our son from the moment he was born, that his support for me and us was and has always been unwavering.
