David Caren, the founder of popular website Dad.ie, delivers a long overdue, practical, straight-talking pregnancy guide for Irish expectant dads – all from a dad’s perspective. Becoming a dad is one of the most important life-changing events to occur in a man’s life. But while there are hundreds of books out there for mums-to-be, there is precious little for Irish dads-to-be – until now, that is!
easyDNA Ireland is a leading online paternity testing provider and recommends David Caren’s book as it provides sound and relevant information – a great companion for Irish dads-to-be. Caren tackles the most important issues and tones them down to make them pleasurably readable and memorable.
David Caren’s new guide is a practical reassuring read, written by a dad for dads. Combining real-life experiences from Irish dads who’ve been there, tried-and-tested dad tips, and expert views, it accompanies the expectant dad through each trimester, every mood swing (his’n’hers), the main event (labour!) and those first weeks of new family life.
In writing The Irish Dad’s Survival Guide to Pregnancy & Beyond the author strived to make the content accessible, fresh and reassuring, when it called for a more medical approach to certain topics he relied on the help of a GP (and expectant dad at the time too!) to ensure that any terminology appeared in dad-friendly plain speak. To put expectant dads further at ease, a seasoned midwife and lecturer in Midwifery patiently answered all the important questions regarding the delivery including ‘Where do I stand in the labour ward?’ and ‘What if I feel faint?’…
‘Surviving the first six weeks’ after the birth plays an integral part in the book. Naturally becoming a dad is considered to be one of the most important life-changing events to occur in a man’s life; however, in the months leading up to seeing your baby, dad can often feel side-lined with the reality of the situation not kicking in until he is cradling his newborn in his arms for the very first-time.
The Irish Dad’s Survival Guide to Pregnancy & Beyond is available from all good bookstores and online here…
