Publisher's Summary

Primarily aimed at first-time fathers, this guidebook not only helps men understand the process they go through when dealing with pregnancy but also shows them how they can participate in positive ways.

Author Pratik Patil offers information and advice that doesn't appear in other pregnancy guides. The main purpose of this book is to help men help their wives during pregnancy and also to teach them how to take care of their own physical and mental health in their journey into pregnancy.

Expectant fathers will learn how to prepare their bodies to promote a successful pregnancy, how they can support their wives during those nine months, and how to handle a newborn infant, along with other tips on parenting - all of which is the first step toward being a great dad.

But Pregnancy and Men isn't just for men. It also enlightens women about what their husbands go through during pregnancy. Encouraging empathy, responsibility, and a positive attitude, it's a must-listen for anyone planning to start a family.

Good start for sure

Good intentions and good thoroughness. Men can know even more abt all of this. This author is definitely carving out new and needed space and I'd encourage him to dig deeper and write more.

To the point and exactly whats needed

If you could sum up Pregnancy and Men in three words, what would they be?

interesting thought-provoking must-have

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are no characters in this book being a non-fiction, but real character is us the readers who are or who will go through experiencing their spouses pregnancy and will learn a lot from this book on how to handle it better

Have you listened to any of Mike Norgaard’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not really. But this one feels very professional narrated regardless.

What did you learn from Pregnancy and Men that you would use in your daily life?

Never knew important of preparation for pregnancy for men before reading this book. Now i am following the suggestions. There is no other book I read which has topic on 'Trimesters of men', very interesting.

The book has surprise chapter on food for her, my wife is always very food curious, so giving her food suggestions is gonna be easier for me. + it has a few awesome recipes, i already try two of them, in fact she loved it so why not.

Book is making me prepare my mindset for pregnancy instead of just going with the flow, this will help me a lot in near future. My wife is listening it now, and she can relate a lot of things too.

Parenting tips given are the best, and I could relate to those all from my growing up

Along with seriousness of topic, some humor is sprinkled all along so brings out chuckles.

Any additional comments?

I wish the book could have been a little longer, a lot of interesting concepts given in book, would have loved hearing more.

watered down, “just chill mate”

This book was less than two hours with a very longe preface and introduction. If you are looking for advice to help your pregnant women during development, that doesn’t start till about 3/4 the way though the book. If you need help impregnating your partner than give it a listen. A lot of common sense tips you could get the same about of info via a quick YouTube search from men who have kids. I did make one note on a tea Recipe.

A great audiobook for any first-time dad

When I first found about that I will become a dad, I was terrified. It was a huge step, and I felt completely unprepared. The first thing I wanted to do, was to educate my self a little bit about pregnancy and being a first-time father, online. This audiobook came in perfectly, it is very informative, with some great and helpful tips. It is definitely a material that I will often re-listen in the next few months :)

Disappointing

I should have listened to the previous reviews they were pretty spot on. This book had little to offer.

Waste of Time

This "essay" (I don't think it deserves to be called a book) was a waste of time. Sounds more like an assignment that a junior high student had written with only a mediocre grasp of the English language. The author is not a doctor, writer, or humorist yet tries to play the role of all three without citing any sources along the way. Thus he fails miserably at reaching a level that could be achieved by a real doctor or humorist or writer. At times if you remove the subject of pregnancy from the context, the advice sounds more like things you would teach a toddler. Really, I should stay healthy by going to the gym and washing my hands after I go to the restroom? Thanks for wasting my Audible credit and my time. I hope you aren't profiting in any significant way from having published this drivel. And for the record, repeat Lord of the Rings references have no place in a pregnancy book, unless of course it's aimed at adolescents. Perhaps your essay should be called "Pregnancy and Boys"?

Waste of good money

Don't even bother. Your better off saving your credit and time for something more informative.
