Alice: Dad's on the scene

Alice: Dad's on the scene

Alice, mum to Isadora 
I used to wonder how my husband was going to take on the challenge. Well, I've certainly seen a new side of him that I never knew existed: he's actually a real father hen! He's always there and always on hand, which is really nice. We make a perfectly balanced trio with Isadora.

Dr Goupil says that husbands often feel that their wives are 'leaving them' to start up a new relationship with the baby.
"It's important to leave a place for him as dad, and to establish a new balance."
