My husband is quite supportive of me during the pregnancy, but I know that he often feels left out of things, even when efforts are made to include him. The midwives at the birth center smile and greet him, but don't include him in much of the discussions and such during the appointment, for example. I realize it must be hard to watch your partner go through intense physical and emotional changes without being able to understand exactly what they are going through. 

Not sure if I have a question, exactly, mostly just wanted to see if anyone felt the same way, or had suggestions for more inclusion. Do other dads-to-be feel this way?
