Plan your route to the hospital
Pick the best route to take and time how long the journey takes at different times of the day.
Talk to other Dads
If your friends or brothers have kids, ask them for advice. They’ll be able to tell you what to expect in the early days and help you prepare for it. Offer to babysit their kids so you can get some hands-on experience. They’ll be delighted and will hopefully return the favour when you need a hand.
Go on dates with your partner
You’ll have very little time to yourselves once the baby arrives so make the most of the lead up. Go out for dinner, go to the cinema or catch up with friends. Have lots of fun.
