A “New to Fatherhood” cheat sheet
“First Time Dad: A Survival Guide for Expectant Dads During Pregnancy by Alfie Thomas”
It was then that I realized that I too, like my son, was crying uncontrollably.
A non-fiction/self-help, Alfie Thomas bought a one-of-a-kind series, which speaks and relates directly to all new dads whose role is not highlighted – throughout pregnancy or after the pregnancy. This trilogy appeals to all new dads and explains everything a new dad needs to know. From pregnancy terms, what to expect each week and when the baby is coming. The book covers all the bases.
Almost all pregnancy books focus on women. They all acknowledge what a woman goes through, but no one emphasizes a man’s role in it all. at Thomas Part 1 : : ……………. does exactly that. It highlights the issues, struggles, and feelings of being a new father, and as such the book is a guide for all new dads during and after pregnancy. It details what they should expect from their new life and how to play an active role in it all; how to help your pregnant wife with labor, mood swings and pain. And then, when the baby arrives, how to survive the burping, drooling, pooping and crying child you’ll love more than anything. This is a male centered pregnancy guide. ‘A Guide to Pregnancy for Men 101’ if you must.
“Welcome to earth, EJ,” I told him, shaking his miniature fingers. Since then, he had stopped crying and looked at me strangely as if to ask me: “Are you sure that you will be a good father for me?”
The author, Thomas Alfie, father of 3, software engineer and lecturer, watched his mother struggle alone to make ends meet throughout her life. Anticipating the birth of his own child, he feared he would be a bad father because he had no role model, so he turned to self-help books for guidance. Much to his dismay, he saw that most of these books weren’t even about dads! It was then that he decided to change it. As it is so eloquently said, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” And so, he embarked on a journey to guide all anxious men through pregnancy and later help them connect with their child.
Part 1, “The Pregnant Survival Guide for New Dads Through the Pregnancy Journey” from the Serie “First Time Fathers” is now available for purchase in e-book format from Amazon.
