She’s pregnant, which means you’re pregnant. Not literally of course, but you’ll be slap bang in the middle of nine months of flying hormones, back rubs, and too much talk of childbirth – you’re in for the ride of your life. And you’re going to be a dad. Fatherhood is just around the corner – are you ready? Most pregnancy books are for the mother but this one is just for you, the new father. We guide you through nine months of joy, excitement, fear, lots of big words, and an expanding bump, so that you emerge from this emotional rollercoaster ready for anything your newborn baby will throw at you (which will either be sick, poo or regurgitated milk). From how your baby grows month by month to how to support your partner (it’s the little things that count, we tell ourselves), international bestseller Pregnancy For Men is your survival guide to the whole nine months.

And when the newborn arrives (and you can’t put the car seat in) Mark’s on hand with the next installment, Babies And Toddlers For Men, packed with funny anecdotes and advice from an array of new dads.

About the author

Mark Woods

Mark Woods started his writing career as a news journalist for the UK’s national news agency the Press Association. After covering everything from the war in Kosovo to a pair of brave pigs escaping from an abattoir, a move into television followed where he attempted to make ONdigital and then ITV Digital a huge success. The enormous corporate disaster that followed allowed Mark to concentrate on writing and he joined the charity Comic Relief as a journalist – a position he has somehow managed to retain to this very day. The birth of his first son inspired Mark to write the best selling Pregnancy for Men which has since gone on to become an international hit too. Babies and Toddlers for Men, published in spring 2012, mixes the wisdom of experienced fathers and the latest research with Mark’s many mistakes to help the modern day Dad make the best fist of the most important and enjoyable job he will ever have.
