Preparing for a Little One- For Dads to be

The realities of pregnancy never really dawn on a man the same way it will dawn on a woman. The male of most species will make no biological sacrifices; men will not have the arduous task of growing another human from only DNA matter and protein. All of the additional work that comes with having children is usually a mother’s burden to bear- at least for the initial first few months.

Preparing for a Little One- For Dads to be

The realities of pregnancy never really dawn on a man the same way it will dawn on a woman. The male of most species will make no biological sacrifices; men will not have the arduous task of growing another human from only DNA matter and protein. All of the additional work that comes with having children is usually a mother’s burden to bear- at least for the initial first few months.

Even before the baby is conceived, a man’s health can affect his offspring in ways he may never imagine. The human genome is quite complex and there is a feedback loop with the environment which will turn on or off certain gene sequences. The control of this on/ off switch is dictated by epigenomes. These gene sequences can make a person more or less susceptible to chronic diseases; they can also cause certain behavioral patterns to be activated which can ultimately determine the offspring’s survival. Keeping even a base level of fitness and actively practicing a healthy lifestyle is not only for the man today, it is for the men of tomorrow as the epigene tags tend to affect son and grandsons more than daughters.

How to Prepare

Being constantly prepared for a child is weary work especially if wild oats are still being sown or if a relationship is in its infancy. A key point to note here is that EVERY sexual encounter has the possibility of bearing fruit. Any woman being bedded that night can possibly become the mother of your children so be sure to choose wisely.

 

 

If bypassing kids is the target a simple suggestion would be to avoid sex altogether until the one has been found, but this is extremely unlikely. Love whether for 10 minutes or 10 years can cause a person to go crazy so express yourself but do so carefully. Before sex has a conversation to establish if the woman/ women are on some form of contraceptive and how regularly it is used. As a backup never enter a woman domain without proper rubbery protection.   

Get a Regular Checkup

 

The other form of preparation comes from within, develop healthy practices and maintain them to ensure maximum potency at the time of conception. Small things such as eating less processed foods, eating in correct proportions and eating the correct foods when figuring out those proportions are essential to reproductive health. A quick trip to the nutritionist will help you tailor a food program based on current realities.

Many men will not like this, but going to the doctor even when you are not feeling ill is a must. There are some very silent killers which affect men more than women. Illnesses such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and unintentional injuries are all things which kill more men than women. Keep your doctor’s number on speed dial, you as well as your future children may need it more than you to accept or realize.
