Being a great first-time dad doesn’t mean being perfect. It means having the tools you need to be a supportive partner during and after pregnancy - which is exactly what We’re Pregnant! The First-Time Dad’s Pregnancy Handbook is all about.
From heartburn and headaches to birth and breastfeeding, We’re Pregnant! features practical, action-oriented pregnancy advice from the author of the Dad or Alive blog, Adrian Kulp, a (once clueless) dad who’s been there and done that - three times, in fact!
We’re Pregnant! addresses and alleviates the stress first-time dads face through candid pregnancy guidance, including:
- Week-specific pregnancy milestones so you’re not left wondering what’s happening, what’s going to happen, or what you should be doing during the pregnancy
- Practical suggestions for supporting your partner’s changing needs during pregnancy and thereafter
- Action-oriented goals that will support baby’s development, mom’s pregnancy experience, and the wellbeing of your relationship
- Up-to-date information on “The Fourth Trimester” so you’re as prepared for the first months of baby’s life as you were during pregnancy
We’re Pregnant! delivers real-world pregnancy advice with a humorous tone that will get first-time dads ready, willing, and able to carry their portion of the pregnancy weight….pickles and ice cream not included.

BEST PART: By far, what my husband and I love most about this book is that it doesn't have a sexist overtone. It's not obnoxiously stereotypical like other "dad-to-be" books in that it doesn't assume that every man is a slack-jaw, knuckle-dragging idiot. It's smart and witty. The tone is generally, "Look, here's what's going on and why. It's going to be scary and fun and you'll do great. Just step up, dude." Highly recommended!

Speaking of which - there is absolutely no mention of the birth itself??? You have a chapter discussing week 40+ and then it skips straight to the postnatal phase!
The good parts: it provided useful info on what challenge’s the woman can expect various stages and how the man can help.
Setting the above mentioned frustrations aside, the book is ultimately lacking in any real advice. It provides easy to read and digest info that helps you follow the babys growth week by week. However, if this is the only literature you absorb during the pregancy, you will find yourself largely unprepared at each key milestone.
In short, this is a book for Americans who enjoy a "traditional" family dynamic and want to say they have read a baby book without actually taking a leading role in the pregancy.
As a side note, If you are from the UK, I suggest buying a book written closer to home. I recommend Rob Kemp's "The Expectant Dad's Survival Guide".
- Nice breakdown week by week
- The little tables which run down the changes of Mum and Baby are informative
- Some of the ideas in here feel a bit outdated, perhaps misogynistic or sexist in nature.
- VERY US-centric. Doesn't translate well into the experience of those in the UK or elsewhere.
It's just very okay. There are certainly some good elements of this book, but the outdated ideas and focus on fathers in a secondary role is somewhat offputting.
All the information is available online and it makes more sense as you would look for what you need at the moment. e.g. pregnancy milestones, what to do arround the house etc. But the information you actually need is not here: how to hold a baby, how to burp them, what is common for people to do with the baby but is better no to, how to support the mom during labor and so on.
waste of money.
