Dad's Guide To Pregnancy For Dummies

As birth rates in England and Wales reach a 40 year high, a glut of men are facing fatherhood for the first time. Dad’s Guide to Pregnancy For Dummies from Wiley is a practical information book to help navigate dads-to-be through the sometimes precarious areas of conception, visits to the doctor, women’s changing bodies, sex, labour and delivery.

Dad’s Guide to Pregnancy For Dummies is authored by Dr Roger Henderson, a practicing NHS GP for more than 20 years. Throughout the guide, Dr Henderson prepares future fathers to maximise their involvement throughout the pregnancy, birth and beyond in a frank and informal style. Highlights of the book include Ten Ways to Be a Super Dad From Day One and a very handy Ten Things She Won’t Ask For But Will Expect.

Dr Henderson said, “A man’s role in pregnancy can never be underestimated and it’s not unusual for future dads to need a few practical pointers to help understand what their partner is experiencing and the best ways to help. From the beginning, dads need to know how to help survive morning sickness, how to expect the unexpected as well as practical tips on dealing with the high costs of having a baby.”

The 2nd edition of Pregnancy For Dummies (£15.99), also publishes in October 2011. Written by Dr Roger Henderson and Dr Sarah Jarvis, the 2nd edition features new guidance on medical and nutritional information as well as changes in NHS practice to prepare and reassure mums ahead of the birth.
