It's only right for a particular type of modern parent who is focused on child rearing above all else, and for a birth partner who is (in my opinion) desperate to have intense involvement and (in my opinion) an unhealthy level of control over every aspect of pregnancy and childbirth. It made me feel like there was something wrong with me for being a regular bloke who's not especially obsessed with children and childbirth. For example, it's a bit odd to adamantly reject the title "birth coach" because that UNDERplays your role in the process. There's too much male ego and desire for control in some sections of this.
Maybe that's all ok for some people. But don't feel bad if you and your partner think it's better for you to just to support and help the person who is actually going through childbirth, rather than trying to insert yourself in every detail and (frankly) co-opt the experience. I'm sure mine is an outdated view but I don't care, this social pressure to be like every other modern, high-performing helicopter parent wannabe is nonsense. I turned out alright and didn't rob no banks or nothing.
That said, well written and clearly well researched etc. If this is the kind of book you want, it's a wealth of information and superior to the jokey "you're gonna be a dad, dude" books that seem to be the only alternative.
