5.0 out of 5 stars The Independent: "A Quite Brilliant Book"; Mothering magazine: "A Gold Mine", 16 Nov. 2008
By 
This review is from: The Father's Home Birth Handbook (Paperback)
On April 16, Annalisa Barbieri wrote, in an article in "The Independent," that "The Father's Home Birth Handbook" is "a quite brilliant book." She was right! And Melissa Chianta called the book "a gold mine" in Mothering magazine (May/June 2009). She was right too!

Every father-to-be should read this wonderful book, no matter whether his partner is planning to give birth at home or in hospital. Nothing beats the words, in this book, of the many fathers who describe, with admiration and love, how their partners delivered their babies. It is rare that fathers speak so openly about the intimate details of birth and the ways in which watching and helping their loved ones has brought them closer together. Leah Hazard, an experienced doula, writes with charm and authority (and citations!) about the joys and, also, the occasional unexpected problems of home birth. If your partner is pregnant or if you know a man whose partner is pregnant, buy this book so that you or he can learn from other men what they experienced when their partners gave birth. You can buy the book directly via Ms. Hazard's website if Amazon is out of stock.

5.0 out of 5 stars A neatly compacted book, well researched and in an accessible style., 29 Jan. 2009
By 
This review is from: The Father's Home Birth Handbook (Paperback)
What makes this book so exciting is that not only is it written in a very accessible format, but the content relies on well researched high quality evidence. The evidence it presents is from "gold standard" and well documented sources that health information specialists and clinical staff use to make decisions on a day to day basis. You can be sure that this book is not just a collection of "googled information sources", but from authoratative sources and with that comes peace of mind for any user of this text. I am a freelance health information analyst (and a mother)and I have recommended this book to prospective parents, but also to clinical staff and health information specialists in the NHS and other health organisations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little book - for both parents!, 25 Oct. 2010

This review is from: The Father's Home Birth Handbook (Paperback)
I bought this book for my husband to help him decide whether he wanted a home birth (by that point I already knew that I did!). I wanted him to feel like he had all the information and could make an informed and confident decision. This book provided exactly that - the book posed and then answered many of the questions already floating around in my husband's head (and mine) and then backed up the answers with people's personal stories.

I found that this book really helped both my husband and me to feel really confident and excited about home birth.

I think that this book will definitly benefit both parents - the father will feel more confident and therefore be a better supporter during labour and this will benefit the mother. I have read this book cover to cover and it has really helped me and answered lots of my questions too.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book was so needed!, 13 Jan. 2009

This review is from: The Father's Home Birth Handbook (Paperback)
Leah has written such a wonderful book. It has already been helpful to 2 fathers-to-be that I have supported recently as a doula. I heartily recommend Leah's informal, yet informative style of writing and her insistence on providing solid, evidence-based facts. Buy this book if your wife's pregnant - it really could make all the differnce to the start of your parenting journey.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great resource for all expecting parents, 21 April 2010
This review is from: The Father's Home Birth Handbook (Paperback)
This is a fantastic resource for all parents, not just fathers, and not just parents preparing for a home birth.
The book contains a lot of information on pregnancy and birth which is valid whether you're planning a home birth or a hospital birth. The information is clearly presented, backed by research, easy to read and remember.
A must!
