What book should I have DH read?

He's not a big reader, and I'm sure I can get him to read one...so I want it to be the best, lol. He's totally on board with all things natural, trusts my opinions and has done his own research too...so I'm not convincing him of anything, just thinking general information/support etc.

Thanks!

If he's not opposed to anything you are wanting/not wanting and has done some of his own research I wouldn't have him read anything. It sounds like if he needs to know something he can look it up or ask you, and if it wouldn't enjoy reading I don't see the benefit to trying to get him to.

I had DH read "The Birth Partner" by Penny Simkin. It wasn't that he was opposed to anything but that I wanted him to be very involved and informed about what our natural birth was going to look like. He said it was very informative and useful.

My dh hates reading, but with our first he wanted to know everything about pregnancy and childbirth. I just read out loud to him lol. We just read what to expect when you're expecting and the nursing mother's companion. Also childbirth class was a good thing for him, he was a lot more prepared for the not so good things that happened during our experience like prodromal labor and an emergency C-section. He was very patient with my pain and inability to sleep for almost 2 weeks before baby finally came lol.

Re: What book should I have DH read?

It's not very helpful in terms of actual information, but my husband loved the book Man vs. Child. It's a comedian's take on his parenting journey. There were so many laugh out loud kind of moments that it makes you want to keep reading. It was a good book to break the ice before jumping into more serious books. I also heard great things about The Wonder Weeks, but I haven't read it myself.

I second the suggestion to read "The Birth Partner" by Penny Simkin. Such a wonderful read and my husband thought it was very helpful.

No bad kids. Get him looking forward to parenting methods while you focus on pregnancy and delivery.
