Childbirth is not only about the ladies. Certainly, women have the task (and some might say privilege) of giving birth, but fathers are part of the journey too and are often left out when it comes to childbirth education, antenatal classes or prenatal preparation.
Well not anymore Sydney! Beer + Bubs has been running in Sydney pubs since 2004. It's a one-night session at the pub just for expectant fathers on how to support a women through childbirth and it comes highly recommended by midwives, obstetricians and other birth professionals from all major Sydney hospitals.
Expectant dads won't be bored to snores with more detail than they need to know about obstetric complications. Beer + Bubs really focuses on the role of the support person and what they need to know to help a woman have an easier, faster labour.
Expectant dads will discover how to be an active and effective member of the birth team to make the most of what can be one of the most memorable days of a man's life.

Lucy is tops. Very down to earth and a no nonsense, practical bird. I've read a few books, spoken to a few parents and have endured eight weeks of antenatal classes but I got a lot more out of these two hours than I have in the past few months.
Cheers to Childbirth: a dad’s guide to childbirth support by Lucy Perry
This book is written specifically for men to prepare them for their role in the birth of their baby: a day in a man's life that he really can't afford to stuff up.
A childbirth guide written for expectant dads including birth stories from high profile fathers.
I am loving the book. I have been caught out many times laughing hysterically to the point of snorting! Or tearing up at the guys account of birth. God love 'em.
I have just read Cheers to Childbirth and the stories shared are truly amazing. It further amplifies my desire to be a better husband during the birth of our first child.
