I got to know another dad, before this class started at our birthing seminars, and it helped to have an acquaintance there. The day was pretty much a round table facilitated by an experienced father where we could share our fears, and get them out in the open. We would then discuss them in as much detail as we all could, and try to find solutions together.
The program is one I highly recommend. It really helped me get past my initial fears and concerns. So much to the point that I did a great deal of the daily necessity things with our first child like infant bathing, which as a new dad knows, is a scary event. It made the first six months or so much easier. I was able to communicate with the other fathers in the group and the facilitator via email several times, and this was all before Facebook and other social media outlets became very poplar.
If you are an expecting father, check your area for this program. It’s the best day you will spend in preparation.
