My dh is very involved as an equal caregiver of our dc. But pregnancy and birth are definitely more abstract for him. He's very receptive to reading whatever info I throw at him but I do the researching part. It's worked great for preparing past birth plans, discussing big decisions like not to circ, etc.

I've realized that he doesn't really have any idea how different pregnancy, birth and post-partum can be with twins. Last week I mentioned something about the NICU and he was kind of like "Ok, so they sleep there-- right?" Mind you, this is a man with an IQ in the 140s. But to be fair, we don't have any close friends with twins and these topics are just not on his radar.

Any suggestions of good online resources or articles for dads of multiples?
