The winner is comment #29: Dina

There are so many books and DVDs out there for the expectant mom. But what about the dads? Don’t they also need a little help and guidance as they embark on this new journey? Well, Being Dad: Inspiration & Information for New Dads does just that.


Finally…An easier way for guys to learn what to expect when she’s expecting! Vast information is available to help women during those 40 weeks in which they grow from a woman into a mother. Men grow during those 40 weeks too. Now there’s a DVD that will help men and couples understand what the guy can expect as he transforms into being a dad.


We found Being Dad to be a wealth of knowledge and resource. Even though my husband has been through this twice before, he was able to learn new things as he watched this video. During the film, experts follow 40 dads from across the county as they discuss and prepare for childbirth. They talk about pretty much every topic you can think of including preparing for the worst.

The best part is that it’s really designed for men. The terminology and the way the material is presented really focuses on the way men process information. They made it clear exactly what topic was coming up next and gave very real examples that men can relate to.

The second video in the series focuses on what happens to your life after baby is born: sleep deprivation, feedings, illnesses, diaper changes, etc. It pretty much takes over where the first one leaves off. Again, it’s geared towards men in the way the topics are shared.

Overall, we found these videos to be a great resource tool. My husband learned more by watching Being Dad than he did the whole nine months that I was reciting to him from my pregnancy books. Plus, he seemed to take the information more to heart when it was coming from other males. I’m just glad he finally got the message.
