Expectant Father 2020

We found out we were pregnant at the end of lockdown for the COVID-19 pandemic and I, as I often do, started to obsess about all things baby.

I took a quick look for audio books aimed at men and what to expect for the fathers side of things. This book is great for its informative month by month sections, glossary and sometimes humour.

I must admit I wasn’t much of a fan of the constant jokes throughout and it felt a little, like other reviewers have said, Dad jokey! I suppose anyone ready/listening to this is soon to also fall into that category.

I have trouble with the constant talk of men being idiots. In the section about reading instructions I found myself getting annoyed at how the writer generalised all men to be incompetent. Whilst I know this is not the case in all men, I do have it admit I do know a few men who ARE the ways described in this book.

I got this book to find out more about to expect and I have finished it with way more information than I started with so all in all I would say it was ok for me.

Average book

Not the best audio book out there. I didn’t find the advice very useful, the author is rather negative overall.

Not bad

A fairly obvious and limited account of pregnancy. The story was far better read in a voice your imagination makes up rather than the chosen narrator who is obviously too old to be saying some of the terminology or catch phrases. He’s like listening to a cross between postman pat & a bbc news reader.

Great advice, maybe best in physical form

As a new father-to-be, this book was insightful and had great advice, however driving in the car means that it is almost completely forgotten about when it actually matters. Also, the jokes don't quite land as I imagine they might on paper.
Overall, a good book but my advice would be to buy the physical copy.

Rather negative view of pregnancy and birth - didn’t finish

I was looking forward to listening to this with my partner, as we are expecting our first baby. We are both reasonably naive and have much to learn but I can take for granted knowledge so wanted something for him.

However the person doing the reading has a really dull voice.

Although it tries to be light hearted, most of the time it isn’t that funny.

It is entry level which is good.

But generally it is quite out dated in its view point and just generally negative about pregnancy and especially labour and birth. I am glad it wasn’t the first audio book I had listened too as it would have made me not look forward to it all to come. But sadly can’t say the same for my partner, fortunately he isn’t a worrier and is quite relaxed about it all.

Don’t feel we got much from it.

Better alternatives available

I downloaded this audio book with optimism because of reviews that I had read. I found it very difficult to follow and it basically just told me everything I already knew about pregnancy. I wouldn’t recommend it to any dads to be as there is far better alternatives out there.

A great start for men in a females world.

Simple, to the point and in depth. All you could want so you can say "I know this and that about this and that." and be a little more prepared for things to come. Still occasionally falls victim to the very same problems it tries to rectify however in that it seeks to remove the stereotype of the Homer Simpson male with pregnancy yet makes silly story references and a few boring quips over generic male behaviour. The stories in particular I found pretty dismal, think GCSE French textbook level of awkward. Would be nice to have a more serious tone for some of us in situations where we may be genuinely bricking it and looking for help in all the places we can. Overall though, an invaluable guide despite this.

Women will like it too!

Very informative, quirky and easy to listen to. Got it for my partner, but think I enjoyed it even more than him!
