Men Get Pregnant, Too (despite never pushing a watermelon through a pigeonhole):
They received an Early Pregnancy Test as a wedding gift. Subtle. But, this couple wasn't even sure they wanted to be parents. How to tell their mothers and fathers they may never become grandmas and grandpas was just the first of many hurdles on the journey towards eventual parenthood.
Once the baby was on its way (after an 18-month long attempt at conception), the father-to-be quickly becomes a secondary player in the process. While his wife is experiencing morning sickness, medical scares and migraines, the dad-in-waiting wrestles to find his own voice.
Are these phantom symptoms real, or imagined? Can he express his own worries about whether he will be a good father? Or voice his concerns about the surprising results of a genetic test? Does he HAVE to help organize his own baby shower?
Men Get Pregnant, Too is a rare gem. It treats both motherhood and fatherhood with equal respect, while challenging couples to re-examine a father-to-be's role and his voice throughout pregnancy.
It is a must-read for any couple who has--or is planning on having--children (and having to deal with their relatives, too!).
From intimate conversations about infertility, health, in-laws, medical emergencies, and balancing a full-time job with a role as butler to visitors, MGPT is guaranteed to start a new debate among a new generation of parents.
