Call Me Dad! is a down-to-earth yet upbeat, humorous and inspiring guide for new fathers and fathers-to-be covering everything men need to know about pregnancy, childbirth and baby's first year. It delivers a strong message that there is nothing to fear about being a dad and that the father's role is vital in a child's life, right from the start.

Chapters lead the reader through the processes, decisions and need-to-know stuff in logical order: pregnancy; preparing for the baby; surviving birth (roles the man can take during labour and birth); life after birth (handling the baby, hygiene, dealing with visitors, etc.); the first three months, the first six months; and so on through to a review of that whirlwind first year. From three months on, exercises (fully vetted by SPARC) show how dads can also help with the physical development of their tiny future All Black/Silver Fern.

Throughout, there are full-colour photos showing dads doing their bit, from choosing baby seats to changing nappies and bathing the baby, and real-life story snippets from fathers offering advice and encouragement on everything from antenatal classes to labour and beyond.
