Pregnancy, birth & toddlers
Articles about pregnancy and birth from the father’s perspective. Here you’ll find articles about inducing labour, what to expect in the delivery room and why dad should be in the delivery room. There are also a range of articles looking at toddlers and the early years of a child’s life (which I have classed as zero to four years of age).
“Daniel Craig is going to be a dad again at the age of 50. What, John, do you think about older dads?” My response to being asked this surprised me a little.
