How to Be a Dad

Oscar Duke
Authors:
Oscar Duke

In this first doctor-written guide to fatherhood, Oscar combines the medical knowledge of a healthcare professional with his real-life experience to provide an honest, humorous and engaging book that takes you on a journey from baby scans to birthing pools and beyond. Written chronologically, the structure takes shape from body parts - chapters include the Womb (fertility to foetus), Stomach (filling it, hiding it and stopping it vomiting), Genes (the science of screening) and Vagina (different ways to get a baby out). Each chapter has a 'Dr' section containing easily digestible facts and clarifying daunting medical jargon that surrounds pregnancy and childbirth, and a 'Dad' section that contains more emotional and anecdotal tales from Oscar's male patients as well as his own experience. Also included are tips from mums, describing how they are feeling throughout pregnancy and advice on what dads can do (and not do!) to help ease the burden. 'I hope that as a doctor and a new dad, I will go some way towards answering those 'man questions' that never quite make it to the pub, locker-room, water cooler or any other locations where men might find themselves having meaningful chats with another guy. Think of this as a papery man-hug in what is a potentially treacherous world of terminology, hormones, social change, sleep deprivation and finally dirty nappies with tiny feet attached.'

Here's One I Made Earlier

"Who would have thought you could create a cat bed from a washing-up bowl, design a doll's house from an old shoe box or make a flower pot from a margarine tub - all on live television!" Valerie Singleton, Blue Peter presenter 1962-1972"My ultimate favourite has to be Tracy Island. I loved all the little details, such as the bendable pipe cleaner, palm trees and that it was compatible with the shop bought Thunderbirds toys."Konnie Huq, Blue Peter presenter, 1997-2008Blue Peter is the longest-running children's programme in the world. At its peak, before the days of streaming andsocial media, it notched up 8 million viewers an episode and received a thousand letters a day. Recently voted the UK's best children's TV programme of all time, it was - and remains - famous for its makes, all of which used inexpensive household items such as cereal boxes and squeezy bottles, as well as the essential sticky-backed plastic and rubber solution glue. This affectionate celebration of the favourite makes from the show, has facsimiles from the Blue Peter annuals and includes the iconic Advent Crown, made with wire coat hangers, tinsel and candles. A Christmas Door Decoration, made from a polystyrene ceiling tile, some more tinsel and a cake doily. A Luxury Cat Basket, made from a washingup bowl. Plant Pots using old margarine tubs. A Doll's House made from a shoebox (with furniture made from matchboxes). Plus, of course, the instructions for the Blue Peter version of Thunderbirds Tracy Island.

Walking in the Rain

Getting lost and feeling found...'I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.' - John Muir, John of the MountainsWalking is medicine for the mind. It helps us slow down and think things through. It also helps us perk up and generate new ideas. There are few activities as readily available and revitalizing as a brisk walk, or as soothing and stimulating as a long walk. Wonderful things can happen when we set out on two feet.Within these pages, you will find stories from artists, designers, writers, psychologists and speakers who are inspired by the effect of pacing outdoors. You will hear of walks in the city, hikes through woods at dawn and epic adventures involving long journeys on foot. No matter the scale of the tale, the writer offers lessons they learned of a simple, human nature that we can all understand.In each chapter you will discover suggestions and ideas about how to create simple daily habits from the writer's thinking. In a world where so much of the noise around us suggests we are not good enough as we are, and that we must seek to change, these accounts try to do something different. They aim instead to invite a stroll into the complex pathways of the mind to discover the beauty of our own quirky individuality.
