First-Time Dads Must See
7 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being Dad should be given out along with the positive pregnancy test! All first-time dads should watch this movie so that they can not only get a glimpse of what is to come, but also so that they can be a better partner in the whole experience. These are real men, talking like real men about what it is like to go through a pregnancy from a man's point of view. Set in a documentary-like format, you will hear personal experiences from these dads from the moment they find out they are having a baby until the actual birth. A must see for first time dads. This is also a great film for moms as well. See things from their point of view. Listen to their fears and concerns as well as what they just can't understand. A great baby shower gift but really should be viewed as early on in the pregnancy as possible. Very well made, entertaining and educational.
