East Tennessee State University

For the Expectant Father
Mother and baby tend to be the stars during pregnancy, but expectant fathers play a huge role too! Support and communication between partners is always important, but this is especially crucial when a little one is on the way. Dads, in case you are wondering what to expect, here is " An Expectant Dad's Guide to Pregnancy"or, your survival guide for the next nine months.

Dads who are partners of TIPS moms....remember, a good predictor of a mother's success at quitting smoking during pregnancy is support from her partner.  Having daily contact with other smokers and being exposed to secondhand smoke make it more difficult for her to quit smoking, and are very harmful to your unborn baby.  So be there with support and understanding to help her on the path to quitting and, if you smoke, take it outside!
