9780060988395: Pregnant Man: How Nature Makes Fathers Out of Men

Gordon Churchwell's wife is pregnant.  Immediately, she swings into action, buying baby clothes, toys, and supplies, and consulting a never-ending stack of pregnancy books. Gordon?  He's having an out-of-body experience.

Pregnant Man is the hilarious and touching story of Gordon's nine-month evolution from clothes husband to birth partner and coparent.  Along the way, this regular guy stumbles across some amazing discoveries that are important to both sexes.  Starting with hi sown morning sicknesses, Gordon finds out the researchers have long documented that many men have pregnancy symptoms.  The latest scientific findings also reveal a male hormonal response that helps them empathize with their partners and prepare for fatherhood.

About the Author:

Gordon Churchwell writtes for magazines, television, and book publications across a wide range of topics. His piece "Atalanta: The Riddle of Fathers and Daughters" appeared in Room to Grow, a multiauthor collection of essays about parenthood. He recently hosted an hour-long documentary on Pregnant Man for the Discovery Channel. He lives in Cold Spring, New York, with his wife, Julie, and his daughter, Olivia.

Review:

"To open this book is, in itself, to board a unique vessel. From the very first page, you feel that mix of wonder and trepidation with which all great journeys begin. When you emerge, you know you've been in the hands of someone tender, brave, and very witty who has taken you where few have ever gone before: deep inside the inner world of a father-in-the-making." --Noelle Oxenhandler, author of "The Eros Of Parenthood"A funny, honest account of a regular guy's response to his wife's first pregnancy and a serious investigation of this 'weird juncture' in the history of the family."--"Publishers Weekly"A funny and informative memoir of a husband who grows from a disgruntled observer...to an active, even copregnant partner.... Churchwell delivers a bundle of anxious joy."--"Kirkus Reviews
