I feel that a father-to-be should be granted paternity leave. They should get paternity leave because mothers deal with a lot of stress and she needs the father there and she also would need him to do tasks she can’t. They should get paternity leave because there are so many things that are important things that a father wouldn’t want to miss and shouldn’t miss during pregnancy. Also if a father gets paternity leave he will be able to help the mother recover from the pregnancy and from having the baby. Fathers-to-be should get paternity leave because it helps the mother deal with tasks at hand and stress.
This is the time when the mother is the most stressed out and she more than likely needs the father there for her for emotional and physical support. The mother may need the father to help with getting groceries, cooking, cleaning, taking her places and other everyday tasks she may not be able to do on her own. The father is the biggest part of her support system, and a mother would need him around. Fathers-to-be should get paternity leave because there are so many important things a father doesn’t want to miss and shouldn’t miss.
A father wouldn’t want to miss important doctor’s appointments. A father wouldn’t and shouldn’t have to miss getting to see his child born into the world. A father shouldn’t have to miss getting to bond with his child right after birth. Fathers-to-be should be granted paternity leave because they will be able to help the mother rest, heal, and recover from the pregnancy and having the baby. The father could take care of the baby while the mother gets to rest, hang with friends, recovers, or goes back to work. If a father is taking care of the baby, the mother can get much needed alone time.
A father could also help the mother out by taking care of the child so they won’t have to get child care right away, seeing how child care is expensive, and so is a newborn baby. A father should get paternity to leave for very important reasons. He’ll be able to help the mother keep her stress level down and do daily tasks. The father shouldn’t have to miss important things going on during and after the pregnancy, nor would he want to. Also if a father-to-be gets paternity leave the mother will have him there to help her heal, rest, and recover from going the pregnancy and having the baby. Fathers are very important to pregnancy and they should be granted with paternity leave.
