A unique couples guide for mums- and dads-to-be. This book will explain what to expect and how to prepare for your new arrival, and give practical advice on how to support each other and your growing baby.
Mums- and dads-to-be both want the best for their baby, but often their experiences of the journey to parenthood can be quite different.
In this book, leading antenatal teachers Dean and Steph Beaumont offer a new way to prepare for your new arrival. Covering everything from first finding out you are pregnant to the early weeks with your baby, you'll find practical advice, reassurance and guidance on how you can support each other as well as your growing baby.
Divided into sections with targeted information for mum and dad, addressing their concerns and questions, The His and Hers Guide to Pregnancy and Birth will support you as individuals, giving you the confidence and knowledge you need. Each chapter also includes a 'Get Together' section, which provides ideas for bonding, advice on what dad can do to help and ways to connect with and understand each other.
The book is good in that it goes through different birthing scenarios — everything from hospital births to home births and water births, and what to do if dad unexpectedly has to deliver baby at home.
