An invaluable handbook to being the best father-to-be you can be during one of the most exciting times of your life
Dad's Guide to Pregnancy For Dummies walks you through the ins and outs of how to best support your partner through the logistical, physical, and emotional challenges of pregnancy. Yes, we know that you won't be doing the lion's share of the work over the next nine months, but you can do your part by getting a head start on learning critical information about the ins and outs of pregnancy, labor and delivery, and the first few months of baby care.
You'll get the lowdown on topics like setting up a nursery, how to be helpful during childbirth, and the best way to change a diaper. You'll even find advice about when to let other people in on the fact that you're expecting.
The book also offers:
- Comprehensive info on ultrasounds, caesarean sections, infertility treatments, and other pre-birth and birth-related subjects
- Brand-new updates on using a surrogate, sperm donation, and what dads can do when they won't be physically present during the pregnancy
- Strategies for handling prenatal depression
Full of authoritative and easy-to-follow tips and techniques to get you ready for the big day (and all the days that follow it), Dad's Guide to Pregnancy For Dummies is your survival guide to pregnancy, childbirth, and fatherhood.
