Summary

There's a wealth of information out there for expectant moms on pregnancy and birth, but so often the dad is left out of the conversation. Male midwife Mark Harris seeks to redress the balance with this new book, drawing on his decades of experience with couples as they make the transition to being new parents. Covering topics from massage to sex and pain relief during labor to breastfeeding, this is a lively, honest, and frank discussion of pregnancy and birth from a man's point of view. Mark explores how to harness the power of birthing hormones, how to remain calm and aware in the birthing room, how to communicate effectively, and ultimately how to live the process of becoming a father.

great book for dad's to be

It's no longer ok for dad's to take a sideline. equally, it's really hard to find that support for men to encourage this hands on approach to pregnancy. this book is a great way of finding comfort in what is still a little hostile territory for men. it's a must read. I also recommend getting a physical copy for the diagrams as well!

Excellent choice for fathers-to-be at every level

This book will help you to better understand your male supportive role throughout the entire birthing process, no matter what stage you're at. Even if you've had children before, you'll be amazed at how much there is yet to learn. This book is complete and easy to listen to. The author is the narrator which automatically gets my respect.
