Anna Getty: Well, I think dads and caregivers need to ask for communication from the new mom, from their spouses, from the pregnant woman, you know, just to communicate. Because I remember with my husband, there were things I expected him to know and he didn’t and I will get frustrated. Same thing with the caregivers. Really to communicate your needs, your desires, your wants, your values, so that they understand and they can help you and support you in that. Communication I think is important from the pregnant woman and mother as well as from the caregiver and from the father. What do I need to do? How can I help you? Ask the question, you know. Say it with caregivers I would always continue to do this. I give them books. Can you please read this book so that you and I can have a conversation about the way I want you to take care of my child? The more communication there is, the more honesty there is, the more trust there is, the better the whole Gestalt works.
