all the right places."

The diary format makes it an easy and enjoyable read, unlike all the dry emotionless textbooks. I bought it for my husband and it prompted us to discuss a few issues that we were overlooking or avoiding. It contains a lot of useful practical information without being dogmatic; it is candid about the conflicting advice and information that is given to pregnant couples by pregnancy experts & health professionals. That was certainly what I found throughout my pregnancy. As the book says, there comes a point when almost every piece of information contradicts something else you've been told.
As well as new dads and mums, anyone who works on a maternity ward in the NHS should read this book. The book says "Nine out of ten midwives are fantastic" but it is also honest about the occasional inconsistency of care. It will ring true with any woman who has given birth in an NHS hospital. It provides detailed and fair-minded criticism from a service user and should be part of the training course for midwives and obstetricians.
Cullen deals with the washing machine of emotions you go through particularly when you are expecting your first child. Reach out for honest reassurance and that you are not alone.
Essential reading for the ignored partner in the procedings.
As the father of two growing children this book took me back with a jolt of recollection to those days of fear, hope and uncertainty that are the world of the expectant parent.
