Format: Paperback
Absolutely brilliant book and found it essential for all stages of our pregnancy, labour and beyond.

Probably like most first time parents, and especially new dads you have all kinds of emotions and concerns when you find out that you will be having a child. I like to get as clued up as possible regarding anything I do but found the sheer amount of information about pregnancy and labour in books, on the net and from other people a bit bewildering. Fortunately my wife purchased the new dad package for the Baby Show at the NEC in May for me and it included the Expectant Dads Handbook. I'm glad I got it when I did so that I was prepared for all stages of pregnancy and was able to make the most of our journey together. Without the book I would have really struggled especially leading up to and during labour, but due to the things learned from it I felt confident and calm and my wife felt that from me. My wife's labour went really well and we were able to stick to most of our birth preferences and I can't thank Dean enough for providing this guide and helping me not appear like a useless numpty who would appear on 'One Born Every Minute'!

I love the way the book is written. It really gets the points home for us dads to be and as others have said is perfect for us guys. Everything is in simple, easy to understand language and really clear. I won't explain too much in the review (you'll have to get the book for explanations) but things I really liked were BRAIN to help decision making, 4-1-1 rule, Keeping the a Grizzly Bears away and the tables highlighting benefits and risks of different actions. The real life experiences were also re-assuring. Even advice as to what to pack in different bags for the labour was amazingly practical. The things we packed were invaluable.

I've just finished reading The Expectant Dad's Handbook and recommend it to all expectant Dad's and their partners!

It's such an easy read, straight to the point with no 'fluff'. Other books of this ilk take pages and pages to make a point but this book captures the point concisely and efficiently without any bias or coming across as patronising. The advice and tips all seem realistic with pointers for every step of the journey straight from the positive pregnancy test to bringing the baby home.

I really can't recommend this book enough.

Format: Paperback
I'm in a same-sex relationship and my partner is expecting our first child. As you can imagine, there is very little for women in our situation, so I reluctantly started looking at the Dad books.

I looked at a few, and it seemed like they all assumed a readership of complete morons, perplexed at how conception took place. Since I was already fairly knowledgeable about things, I wasn't sure about getting any book, I'm glad I decided to give this a try.

For me, there were a lot of things I already know in the book, but there are also ideas and tips that I wouldn't have thought of, and didn't come up in the many pregnancy books we already have!

The way I'm using the book is as I go through, I discuss with my partner the things that are new to me, and some of the ideas given, and we decide together what we think of them and whether we'll use them.

All in all, a good book, and I'm glad I chose this one, and not one in the "dads are dumb" category.

My husband read the book in readiness for the birth of our first child, it made him feel involved and gave him a heads up ahead of the anti natal classes. He was the best birth parter, the book gave him so much advice ahead of delivery, I was so impressed.

A useful, jargon-free handbook which is equally relevant to mums-to-be as well as dads. Takes you through the different stages of pregnancy as well as giving a really useful guide to how to handle different types of birth. Highly recommended.

I thought this book was great. Not patronising, not gimmicky just informative and, I would say, aimed at dads who know how important their partner's birth experience can be and what a crucial role they can play in it.
