Your Pregnancy for the Father-to-Be

Your Pregnancy for the Father-to-Be

Everything Dads Need to Know about Pregnancy, Childbirth and Getting Ready for a New Baby

A comprehensive glossary of terms, a resource section, medical information, and tips for supporting your partner during pregnancy and the birth of your new baby

Pregnancy can be a thrilling adventure for a couple. Although most attention is directed toward the mom-to-be, the nine months of pregnancy are an exciting, moving — and, yes, occasionally stressful! — time for the expectant father as well. Written with the needs and concerns of the dad-to-be in mind, this book will also help you be the best father you can be by covering such topics as:
  • The tests and procedures your partner may undergo
  • The impact of pregnancy on your relationship and how to handle it
  • Ways to evaluate the expenses of having a baby
  • How to be a great labor coach

Praise

"Young fathers-to-be out there, older fathers-to-be out there, I would highly recommend you read Your Pregnancy for the Father-to-Be. This book is filled with advice but is not encyclopedic to read. You can follow its suggestions in a realistic way. It not only teaches about pregnancy and the huge changes going on in your partner, it also explains the emotional and sometimes physical changes you will experience, as you work with your partner toward that date which will make you a king-a father."

"When he speaks, it's easy to see why Dr. Glade B. Curtis has become a best-selling author of pregnancy books. He's warm and articulate and doesn't appear easily rattled. Ask a question and the Utah-based doctor responds with ease. The same is true for his books, including the recently updated Your Pregnancy for the Father-to-Be. It...seems to reach the right balance between being informative and not delving too much into the scary complications that can arise with pregnancy...Each chapter also includes a lot of at-a-glance information that is easy to digest."—Deseret News
"Gives dads essential information on what his partner is going through...This book walks dads through every aspect and gives helpful advice at each turn. This is a welcome addition to the 'Your Pregnancy' library."—Mid-Ohio Valley Parent
"Will brief him on everything from what you are going through to financial tips and common pregnancy terms. It's instant support for you both."
