Publisher Comments:

This indispensable book explores the emotional, financial, and even physical changes the father-to-be may experience during his partners pregnancy. Written in an easy-to-absorb format and filled with sound advice and practical tips for men on such topics as, how to make sense of your conflicting emotions, how pregnancy affects your sex life, and how to start a college fund. This volume reassures, commiserates, and informs. It also incorporates the wisdom of top experts in the field, from obstetricians and birth-class instructors to psychologists and sociologists.

This new edition features the latest research on many topics (and theres a ton of it), from expanding sections on overcoming infertility, in vitro, artificial insemination, and other tech-assisted pregnancies, especially where dad is not the biological parent, to updating the sections on childbirth to reflect the fact that about 80 percent of deliveries are now done with epidurals and new information on c-sections as well. Sections on prenatal communication and education are also be expanded. There will be an overall, top-to-bottom review of the content to make sure all the information is relevant to today's young and senior dads.

Review:

"In this updated third edition of Brott's guide for new fathers, the parenting expert (Fathering Your Toddler) gives dads-to-be a month-by-month breakdown of what to expect as they prepare to welcome a baby into their family. For each month, Brott and Ash give a rundown of what mothers, babies, and fathers are experiencing physically and emotionally, from moodiness and food cravings (which fathers aren't exempt from) to balancing fatherhood with work. Rather than simply offering a laundry list, Brott and Ash explore, explain, and perhaps most importantly, assuage anxiety about the issues that arise and evolve over the course of a pregnancy. Seemingly every topic of concern is covered, from morning sickness, foods to avoid, midwives, doulas, and adoption to worries over miscarriage and birth defects, the latter addressed with calm, sympathetic advice. Brott and Ash's measured, experienced tone offers assurance and guidance for those new to the stresses and worries of impending fatherhood, making this a must-have for anyone expecting.

Expectant fathers - you are far, FAR better off reading "What to Expect When You're Expecting" alongside your spouse or partner. This book is the single most ludicrous collection of self-indulgent nonsense about enlightened manhood that I've ever come across. My wife would have savagely beaten me for even suggesting half of the stuff in this book, and the rest of it, while avoiding actual violence, would nonetheless have made it clear that I thought I was the one doing the heavy lifting.

The fact that it's in the third edition can only be attributed to being one of the few entrants in the dad-specific-pregnancy-manual category. If you are given a copy by a well-meaning friend, you are honor-bound to destroy it.
