Home > Health & Wellness > Health Library > Pregnancy: Relationship Changes
Pregnancy starts a new phase of your relationship with your partner.
You can expect a natural shift in roles as well as attention to and
expectations of each other.
For many couples, pregnancy is an exciting time of change. Along with
change, though, can come stress and new challenges. Many couples find that
pregnancy poses new financial and emotional concerns that they hadn't
anticipated. Some couples find it useful to see a counselor before or after the
birth, to help achieve a healthy transition from "couple" to "family" or from
"family" to "larger family."
