Potential co-parent drama

While this is not the case for every family, the birth of another child can often result in a temporary rift between your partner and their co-parent. This can occur for a variety of reasons but in many cases, it stems from concerns, whether real or imagined, that the older children will be neglected or receive less because of the new baby. Those in healthy co-parenting relationships are usually able to overcome this obstacle; however, it doesn’t mean that it’s not stressful for all involved parties.
