I’m an expectant father and I can’t help thinking that talking to the stomach of my wife is silly. At the same time though I recognize how powerful this action is, on many levels.
First, it connects. The pregnancy is something that mostly belongs to women thanks to their internal change. It’s something that, as men, we don’t get a chance to experience. Therefore that’s the reason why many fathers don’t realize they’re going to have a baby until the baby comes out.
But on a more deeper level, it connects you with the baby because, as study shows, the baby can link the sound he hears while in the womb.
That’s why even the stupid things are worth it. But if you judge them superficially you wouldn’t have done them.
