Honest and informative with warmth and humour too,
This review is from: From Here to Paternity: The Diary of a Pregnant Man (Paperback)
This book is an account of one prospective father's experiences in the form of a diary from pregnancy test to the birth of a healthy baby. It's full of useful advice and insight into the practical and emotional challenges ahead. Andrew Cullen shares the reactions and experiences of his partner Kate, friends and family. Dads-to-be and their partners will find it really helpful because it doesn't create some soft-focused magazine image of pregnancy and childbirth but, instead, one that's more human with all the ups and downs, ambivalence, warmth and humour that that brings. Cullen writes honestly about his fears and hopes during this time and finds that the experience prompts him to go on a journey back to his own childhood, giving him a new perspective on himself and on parenthood.
