Description - The Expectant Dad's Survival Guide by Rob Kemp
Gone are the days when anxious expectant fathers were left chain-smoking in a small room, awaiting news from the maternity ward. Today they attend antenatal checks, road-test buggies and even sit in the birthing pool waiting to cut the cord. Every year 500,000 men become dads for the first time. 86% now attend the birth of their child. These are unprecedented times. Is it any wonder they get a little anxious during the 9-month gestation period?The Expectant Father's Survival Guide tells every dad-to-be all he needs to know about his partner's pregnancy, the birth, the first six weeks -- and how it will impact on him. It will answer every question he finds himself asking from paternity leave and financial planning, to the difference between an epidural and episiotomy, and 'how do we have a conversation that isn?t about the baby??Backed up with expert advice from male midwives and obstetricians, and delivered in a light, informative tone, this essential guide will be the book a bloke reaches for when he needs to gen-up on this life-changing event.
