My advice for the father

The first and most important thing that I want to tell a father is to not abandon his child, and leave all the responsibility on the mothers shoulders. Second, a father will need to listen and talk to his woman because she will be worried about whether or not she will be a good mother. Also, you should make sure that you are willing to do all the chores around the house so she can relax. Last but not least, you should tell her that she looks pretty everyday because she will lose her confidence in her looks.
