"About to Be a Dad: Father to be guide to pregnancy" was written because I was totally unprepared for pregnancy when I heard those three words:- "I am pregnant". I panicked, became a slave to the process, did not feel appreciated or of value and was not the man I needed to be to my wife and my baby to be. By the time it came to my second boy, I was more than ready but I had to learn everything from bonding with my wife and son during the pregnancy all the way to changing nappies and beyond. I took on extra responsibilities to become a stronger financial provider, started to enjoy hobbies and passions that I had been neglecting as these were the things I could pass on to my new born. My whole family, my wife, my in - laws and friends all became amazed at my fatherhood abilities to the extent I have created an evolving website (Blog) for parents, and have written several books / downloadable audios, and videos.
