When a Child is born:
A Child Is Born (Beloved Classic)
by Lennart Nilsson
In this latest edition of a classic originally published almost 40 years ago, photographer Nilsson and obstetrician Hamberger explore the miracle of birth, from attraction between a man and a woman to fertilization, pregnancy, labor and delivery; they also discuss infertility and developments in IVF and other treatments. Over 350 new photographs have been added to the fourth edition, including in utero pictures captured with endoscopy and three-dimensional ultrasound technology. With Hamberger's updated text on guidance for new parents, progress in fertility treatments, genetics and pregnancy health, the volume should continue to be a vivid reference for the whole family.
The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips and Advice for Dads-To-Be
by Armin A. Brott, Armin A. Brott
This is a book that gives the dad information he can use and it also helps show him that feelings he is having are ok and that it is ok for dad to have weird feelings during the pregnancy too. Just cause you aren't the one pregnant doesn't mean you can't be having a roller coaster of emotions too. A very good book for the father to be, even if it isn't your first baby this is a nice refresher if your other one is a toddler or more by now.
