Science Reveals How Men Change Both Emotionally And Physically After Becoming Fathers
We all have been taught what a woman endures during pregnancy and what happens to her mentally and physically. But, we never get to know the male’s perspective of the event. This is mostly because we don’t associate childbirth to bring a huge change in a man’s life other than a few more responsibilities.
For decades it’s been regarded that men remain unaffected by childbirth mostly because they don’t carry the baby for 9 months as the mother does. But, believe it or not, childbirth actually does affect the man both physically and mentally.
1Childbirth and women
Childbirth has always been considered to be an experience that only changes the woman. After all, she does bear the pain of carrying an infant in her womb for 9 months. A pain that the males of her species will never understand. After that comes even more pain during the delivery. All this pain and care put into bringing a new life into the world is said to change a woman emotionally and physically which makes her a mother.
2Childbirth and men
When it comes to childbirth and men, most people don’t feel the same as they do for women. Childbirth changes a woman but does it change a man is a question that has been asked for decades. The obvious answer is yes but there are exceptions. People often think that childbirth doesn’t change men as it changes women because men don’t feel any pain when a new life is born.
3How does childbirth affect women?
When a woman gets pregnant there is a laundry list of things she experiences. From sudden mood swings to hormonal imbalances, from stress to sudden worrying, all these feelings run through a woman’s body and mind when she is about to give birth. And this is only half, the other half is the pain she feels for those 9 months and lastly the pain of childbirth.
4How does this change a woman?
All the mood swings and hormonal changes a woman only experiences when she is pregnant. Not to forget the constant pain she is in. Many experts have claimed that this is the turning point in a woman’s life when she goes from woman to mother. But, like everything in this world, there is an exception.
5Not all women are affected the same way
Every woman experiences almost the same mood swings, pain, and hormonal changes but this does not change every woman. While the majority of them are changed due to this experience, some of them don’t change. They remain the same as they were before which leads to negligent mothers. The same applies to men.
