A you might expect from the title, chapter 4 of Becoming a Father is all about how a man’s nutrition in the 100 days before conception can affect the chances of becoming the father of a happy healthy baby. Did you know that it is not just the ladies who should make sure they get enough folic acid? Did you know that Zinc really matters? Did you know that some sperm swim in zig-zags? Find out all this an more in the latest thrilling chapter of Becoming a father by Rufus Evison
Almost called “From here to Paternity” this chapter of Becoming a Father talks about things a man can do to make a difference.
Did you know that things a man does before conception can:
a) Increase the chances of conception,
b) Improve the chances of a healthy baby
c) Lower the odds of a miscarriage.
There are so many books out there that assume a man cannot make a difference, or even more commonly assume that conception has already taken place. This book explains the reality, based on the real medical research.
I have published Becoming a father chapter 1 and left it to stew. I will be putting up an entry for each of these, or at least the first four as I feel they deserve celebrating. It is a book about becoming a father from a man’s point of view. It is not about what it feels like to become a father. It is about the practical considerations of Becoming a father. Chapter one is basically about who should read the book, how it should be used and the contents. It also shows a nice scan of my son while he was in the womb, which I am including here.
So there it is, copyright on everything from the image to the text is maintained, but feel free to have a read if you are considering having children.
