As I’m sure a lot of dads would admit, I was terrified about attending the birth of our child. But in the end I coped a lot better than I expected and it turned into the most amazing day of my life.
Five things I learned in Week 1 of fatherhood: the birth wasn’t as bad as feared; midwives are wonderful people; the first night at home is terrifying; you won’t believe how much you love your baby; never leave a nappy off for long!
For a simple bloke like me, this book has been more useful than all of the NHS classes, midwife appointments and NCT courses put together. Rob Kemp, you’re my hero!
The inside of the house is almost ready, so now we’ve set about turning our garden into a special outside family space.
