There's a wealth of information out there for expectant moms on pregnancy and birth, but so often the dad is left out of the conversation. Male midwife Mark Harris seeks to redress the balance with this new book, drawing on his decades of experience with couples as they make the transition to being new parents. Covering topics from massage to sex and pain relief during labor to breastfeeding, this is a lively, honest, and frank discussion of pregnancy and birth from a man's point of view. Mark explores how to harness the power of birthing hormones, how to remain calm and aware in the birthing room, how to communicate effectively, and ultimately how to live the process of becoming a father.

Wonderful and empowering book for any couple to share reading. As an expectant women, I got just as much as my male partner did from this beautiful book. So real and honest and funny!!
Honest, interesting, informative and funny.
Sounds like a nice bloke too!
Really helped me understand this process which I felt was alien. Easy to understand with facts and language that really just make sense!
I now feel like I have a place and can now help my wife the best I can through this natural and wonderful birth.
Nice one Mark! Thank you.
Although I'm not a man reading this I can see why this would be such a useful book for any bloke wanting to support their partners in labour. Great read.
"Excellent choice for fathers-to-be at every level"
This book will help you to better understand your male supportive role throughout the entire birthing process, no matter what stage you're at. Even if you've had children before, you'll be amazed at how much there is yet to learn. This book is complete and easy to listen to. The author is the narrator which automatically gets my respect.
