From Here to Paternity: A User's Manual for Early Fatherhood by Sacha Molitorisz
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 'From Here to Paternity', journalist Sacha Molitorisz provides a brief history of fatherhood, explores the rites and rituals of dads in other cultures and debunks the myth that Australia is enjoying a baby boom. Further, he investigates more hush-hush aspects of paternity, including the taboo of sex during pregnancy, the jealousy fathers can feel towards their babies and the prevalence of post-natal depression in men. Weaving in his own story, Sacha explores the ins and outs of conception (metaphorically speaking), the ups and downs of pregnancy and the despair and elation of the labour ward. He then tries to avoid changing nappies and wiping up vomit by writing about changing nappies and wiping up vomit. No such luck. It's the trauma and bliss of newfound fatherhood in all its technicolour glory.
