There are 4.3 million babies born in the U.S. each year but theres not one DVD for expectant dads until now. BEING DAD is a revealing, entertaining and inspirational DVD that offers invaluable advice and experiences for dads-to-be from fathers who have recently gone through the pregnancy and delivery process. It includes a wealth of advice from several experts in the field including an Obstetrician, Family Counselor, Midwife, Childbirth Educator and more. Headed to parenting sections at retail on October 7, 2008, BEING DAD will carry a SRP of $29.99.
“When I was pregnant, or at least my wife was, my friends and I were amazed at the lack of parenting tools for men, said Troy Jones, co-creator of BEING DAD. We felt there was a real need for a product that was entertaining, brutally honest, to the point and easy to watch. What we ended up with was a film filled with honest anecdotes and helpful advice from new fathers themselves, that any dad or dad-to-be can relate to. The feeling of being a father is universal and BEING DAD addresses pregnancy and birth from the man’s point of view and provides an entertaining resource that couples can watch together to promote honest and open discussion.”
There was such a desire for information from all over the country that we decided to put a video together to help men prepare for parenthood, said creator Sam Holt.
BEING DAD brings together more than 40 remarkably honest dads in groups from all around the country and all walks of life. Covering everything from how they first found out about the pregnancy right through to the birth, it explores a broad range of subjects, including many rarely discussed openly like miscarriage and sex during pregnancy. Their honest and hilarious accounts of learning what not to say to a pregnant woman to the riveting stories about premature birth and the overwhelming joy of becoming a dad is entertaining for both men and women. The film reveals the fears, anxieties and relief that every first-time father lives through from the moment he hears the words, “Honey, I’m pregnant!” to the joyous moment he holds his baby in his arms.
Though focusing on the mens perspective, this raw and revealing DVD is also invaluable for moms-to-be because it gives them a rare glimpse into the unexpected mindset of men that often isnt seen or shared with their partners. Its the perfect gift to give an expectant dad.
