The best-selling, ground-breaking, information-packed guide for dads-to-be is now significantly updated, revised, and expanded.

"The best guidebook to date for both the prospective father and his partner in their journey through the nine months of pregnancy... a must for fathers-to-be." -- John Munder Ross, Ph.D., author of What Men Want and Father and Child

One would be hard put to find a question about having a baby thats not dealt with here, all from the fathers perspective. -- Library Journal

For fathers soon expecting the ultimate gift—a new member of the family—The Expectant Father is his best friend. -- CNN Interactive

The Expectant Father breaks down each month of the pregnancy. While the book provides insight into what his wife is experiencing and how the baby is developing, it includes information about what he may be experiencing and feeling as well. --

This indespensible 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, from the reasons for premature birth to nutritional supplements. The finances section has been updated; advice for expectant adoptive fathers has been added throughout; information for fathers expecting twins and other multiples is included; and the resources section and bibliography have been considerably expanded.

Illustrated throughout with New Yorker-style cartoons that will make even the most anxious father chuckle, this book is the essential reference for all expectant couples.
