What do a Dutch university lecturer, a US Marine, a Scottish artist, and an English engineer have in common? They have all experienced the transformative power of home birth, and their stories - and many others - are told in this groundbreaking book. As hospital-based maternity services become increasingly medicalised, more and more parents are deciding that birth belongs in the home.

For many women, this choice may be an easy one, but for their partners, home birth raises some serious questions. For the first time, The Father's Home Birth Handbook provides a resource aimed specifically at exploring men's hopes and fears around home birth. Thorough research, balanced discussion, and dozens of home birth stories from real men all over the world make this book essential reading for all fathers-to-be and the professionals who support them.

The Father's Home Birth Handbook

Like The Politics of Breastfeeding, this is SUCH an important book. In my experience, as co-founder of a parenting website, and personally speaking, it's often the fathers who are nervous of home births, or more so than the women. This book is so well written, friendly and 'hand-holdy' but authoritative. I had a HBAC and whilst I take full credit for doing it (!) this book was a very valuable tool in convincing my partner that we were making the right choice for us. If this comment box weren't so small I'd write an entire essay about how fantastic this book is. Buy it, you will never regret it.
