The moment you find out you're going to be a dad is one of incredible joy, shock, and anxiousness - often all the same time!

It addresses the real challenges that new dads and dads to be go through, while also providing the answers at every step of the way - through pregnancy and the full first year with your baby.

What you can expect in this new dads guide:

  • A focus on the real issues dads go through: This book treats dads as equal parents and goes beyond the surface level and into the deeper challenges around post partum, mental health, physical changes, relationships, sex, and much more.
  • Insights from multiple dad perspectives: Key learnings from our in-depth interviews with more than 50 new fathers from multiple backgrounds (e.g. dads who have conceived naturally, gone through IVF with their partners, dads of twins, and more), that also includes their reflections from COVID-19 and what they would do in any future restriction.

This book is a result of five years of research and understanding of what dads experience throughout pregnancy and beyond, and gives dads the confidence and clarity they need so they have a plan at each stage (and it's great for partners too!).

Loved it!

There are so many things I loved about this book. I loved that it is organized from month to month so that a new dad knows what to expect between the first month to the ninth - goodbye having to explain some basics of how pregnancy works. :-) I loved that there is a chapter to guide them after the first year. And I loved that the language is simple enough to process.

Reassuring and relatable

Listening to this whilst my wife is pregnant and it’s been really helpful to find out about a lot of the ways to support her and things for the future. Hearing from dads who’ve gone through it too is great.

Great book.

This is a huge help as I am dyslexic and struggle to read any more than a few lines.

This book has helped put me at ease about the arrival of our baby.

interesting listen and educational, good narration

I got this for my nephew who is about to be a first time father.
This book should save him from unnecessary worries and stresses of not knowing what’s happening.
I am so glad that there are resources like this book for first time dads.
There’s tons of medical terms and descriptions of what is going on with both mom and the baby.
I also found it comforting to see there were stories from other men and their experiences too.
I recommend this audiobook for first time dads.

Everything A New Dad Needs!

You’re Going to Be a Dad! Covers everything from the time you discover you’re going to be a father and what to expect, to the baby’s nutrition, to the first full year. All the information is in-depth information and very well presented. It’s set up as a countdown which I thought was cool because you could listen to a chapter as you reach that stage, making the information fresh. Also, it made me feel prepared for what to expect. If you are someone about to be a dad, this is a good book to prepare.

Everything a new dad needs in one place.

So many times, books feel like part 1 of 5 and just leave me hanging with as many unanswered questions as answered questions. Not this audiobook! It is a one-stop shop for all I need to know about being a dad. It is a great resource for any first-time dad.

Great book!

From the beginning to the end to where the baby is 1 yrs this book describes from what the mother is feeling to what the baby is feeling and it's great that the author is giving dads advice on not taking certain behaviors from the baby personal. I really recommend this book to all the new dads this book covers it all.

Excellent audiobook - highly recommend to new dads

Being a dad for the first time is far from easy - and dealing with a pregnant wife can be quite the trouble at times. Luckily this book breaks down everything for dads to be in a very easy to understand and digestible manner.

The content is fabulous and the author gets into great detail of every milestone during pregnancy and child development and advises on best strategies to support the mother and the new baby.

The narration quality is also top quality which keeps the audiobook engaging throughout. Loved it!
