"Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers - and fathering is a very important stage in their development." - David M. Gottesman

Although you learn what it means to be a dad from your own father, it is not until the birth of your baby that you start the most important journey of your lifetime - building a relationship with your new son or daughter.

For many men, this time is a rollercoaster of emotions. As a new father, you will experience an overabundance of joy, frustration, love, fear and hope, especially during the first 30 days. That first month is something that will be nothing like you have ever experienced.

So, dad-to-be, start preparing yourself from the very first day you get the great news!
