Early massage and positive touch in pregnancy can play a big part in helping to build closeness within a family group. I have witnessed an increasing number of dads bringing their babies to baby massage classes--but the power of positive touch can and should start long before that. If the father is encouraged to connect with his baby throughout the pregnancy using positive touch and simple massage, as their baby grows the mother, father and baby will all benefit.
