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 Fatherhood Week 1: 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 terrified dad-to-be 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 for the imminent arrival of our baby, so we’ve set about turning our garden into a special outside family space.
How will our dog cope with the new arrival in our lives? And what are we already doing to make the transition work?
How a snowy weekend break in the Yorkshire Dales National Park helped banish the winter blues.
So, we’re having a baby! First we were shocked, then we were terrified, then we were happy – and now we’ve never been so excited.
