How To Be A Pregnant Father

A little while ago I got this awesome book from my Grandma Sandel.  It was published in 1977 so it comes from a different time in terms of what we expected of a father.  The first page talked about the typical role of a father: handing out cigars.

It then goes on to give lots of humorous (but often wise) advice about how to support your wife throughout the pregnancy.  My favorite though (at least that I’m willing to write about here) is the section about what to expect at the hospital.

It was obviously written at a different time as a man’s only role at the hospital is to sit in the waiting room.  That certainly isn’t the way it works now.  Our Lamas class a few weeks ago opened my eyes to a whole new world of the delivery room.  Yikes!  (Not that I’m complaining… I know I’ve got the easy role in the whole thing.)
