Learn how to be a great dad and partner with this practical, hands-on guide to welcoming the newest member of your family

How does my baby develop over 9 months? What can I do to be supportive during pregnancy and labour? And exactly how sleepless are those sleepless nights everyone talks about? Becoming a dad is all about entering a new phase in life, and it's normal to have questions! With Dad's Guide to Pregnancy For Dummies, you can stop stressing about the unknown and learn how to step up in your new role as a parent.

This handbook walks you through how you can be there for your partner from conception to birth, as well as the first steps for settling in at (your newly baby-proofed!) home and caring for bub. Not only will you discover new ways to help mum throughout this journey, but you'll also get advice on how to find support for yourself as a new dad.

You'll quickly get up to speed on:
* The nitty-gritty on how to make a baby (and where to find help if things don't go to plan)
* What happens at each stage throughout pregnancy, including how to navigate morning sickness, ultrasounds, making a birth plan and more
* What to expect in the delivery room--and what you can do to make things easier
* How to get your home ready for your baby--like what to buy and how to baby-proof your life!
* Up-to-date advice on what it means to be a great dad today

By parenting expert (and father of six!) Dr Justin Coulson, this newly revised edition of Dad's Guide to Pregnancy For Dummies is a must-read for fathers-to-be who are keen to build a happier, healthier family life right from the very beginning.
