Rookie Dad: What to Expect During Your Partner's Pregnancy is an informative and practical guide for expectant fathers by Danny Collins. It consists of ten chapters covering a wide range of topics with titles like Irrational Fears, What Should She Eat? and The Arrival: The Birth of Our Son, among others. From the early stages of pregnancy to labor and delivery, it provides helpful tips for the father-to-be. Drawing from his own experience, Collins discusses the physical and emotional changes that expectant mothers go through and the rewards of being an involved and supportive father. It also addresses the emotional and psychological aspects of pregnancy such as dealing with anxiety and mood swings; supporting a partner through morning sickness and fatigue; and coping with the stress of impending fatherhood.
Danny Collins’ Rookie Dad is an engaging guidebook for first-time fathers-to-be. Easy to read and peppered with personal anecdotes and humor, this is a must-read for expectant fathers as it covers everything they need to know during their partner's pregnancy. Written in the first-person perspective, his writing style is casual and down-to-earth. He speaks directly to his audience, making it an enjoyable read. It credibly provides advice on how to support and care for a pregnant partner, prepare for labor and delivery, and adjust to the demands of fatherhood. I found the topic of how to cope with feelings of anxiety, doubt, and even jealousy during a partner’s pregnancy and after birth highly interesting. Ultimately, Rookie Dad is an excellent resource and a perfect gift for first-time fathers-to-be!
