You’ll Be a Wonderful Dad is your practical and emotional guide on fatherhood in the lead up and months following the birth of a baby.
Once a letter to a dear friend and quickly passed on from dad to dad, Ailsa Wild’s warm and encouraging words of precious love and excitement have expanded into a beautiful hardback book to be shared on the parenting journey.
You’ll Be a Wonderful Dad is a kind and important guide on how dads can be proactive in supporting their partners and family through the lead up to birth and new parenting: from practising emotional labour and sharing the mental load to embracing play and connection. Complete with illustrations from Bernard Caleo, this is a must-read and perfect gift for new or expecting fathers.
Since writing her original letter, Ailsa has heard from countless families sharing what her words have taught them. Becoming a father is a time of love and learning, when sexism and gender roles can be frustratingly reinforced. But dads belong right in the middle of their families, experiences all the joy and messiness. It’s going to be wonderful. You’re going to be wonderful.
