Many expectant fathers naturally feel a sense of detachment, curiosity, skepticism or frustration as they listen to a description of all the changes and discomforts that their pregnant partner is experiencing. During a childbirth class, a couple counseling session, or a prenatal check-up in a physician's office, expectant fathers can wear The Empathy Belly and greatly increase their sense of involvement, gut-level awareness, and empathy. Realizing firsthand that her discomforts are genuine and that pregnancy requires significant effort and adjustment on the woman's part, expectant fathers invariably increase their appreciation, communication and supportive behavior towards their pregnant partner.

In addition to its use for the husbands or partners of a pregnant woman.  The Empathy Belly can be used as an action-oriented, hands-on teaching aid for teenagers, The Empathy Belly can be used not only to educate but also to help reduce our nation's current epidemic of teenage pregnancy and parenting. In a counseling setting or during a school Health or Family Life class, girls and boys can wear The Empathy Belly and discover for themselves the many "price tags" or negative consequences that a pregnancy would impose on their teenage lifestyle. This realism quickly shatters their romantic illusions and typical adolescent feelings of invincibility regarding teen pregnancy. The learning experience is especially effective because it is tangible, here-and-now, and teens can relate it to what is emotionally important to them. Live demonstration of The Empathy Belly immediately gets kids' attention and serves as an excellent springboard for generating spontaneous roleplaying and excited, humorous, and candid discussion. Teens can begin to really see why the inevitable demands of pregnancy require mature, committed marriages and responsible support systems if childbearing is to be the joyful, positive experience that it can be. Skillful use of The Empathy Belly not only increases adolescents' knowledge, communication, and values-clarification but also motivates teenagers to prevent untimely pregnancy.
