Pregnancy loss can greatly affect a couple’s relationship. It can either tear them apart, or bring them closer together. A new study shows the outcome all depends on how they handle it. Research of first-time fathers shows the baby does not become real – or at least a man does not consider himself a father until the first time he holds the baby in his arms. On the other hand, the mother has experienced the baby biologically everyday. That baby has been inside her. Therefore, their reactions are different when the fetus is lost.
