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.'

Dreams

Tree Carr
Authors:
Tree Carr

Discover how to create your own dream practice to help facilitate your work and relationships, self-exploration, soul growth, emotional healing and personal empowerment. Human beings have a long history of looking to their dreams for guidance, inspiration, spiritual connection and decision making. Kings consulted seers and gifted dreamers for political advice, and tribe leaders took heed from the prophetic dreams of their shamans. Dreams have led to inventions and scientific discoveries as well as the creation of moving works of art. So why is the modern human so disconnected from our dreams? Our quiet, reflective consciousness has been superseded by the busy, noisy and distractive components of modern culture. Dreams will teach you how, through simple intent, mindfulness, reflection, record keeping, plant work and lifestyle changes, we can enable a deeper connectivity and understanding of our dream world.

Take the six steps, follow the 28-day plan and transform your life!- Sleep better - Enhance digestion - Lose weight - Reduce stress - Elevate energy levels - Feel happier'The Balance Plan is an inspired book by my friend Angelique Panagos.

In modern medicine, we've treated hormone problems as a black or white issue. Disease or healthy. In reality, hormones are our body's way of sending intricate messages of our environment and helping us to react and be as responsive to what is happening around us. Hormones cycles are happening everyday and your diet, lifestyle, and other habits all influence this. Thank you Angelique for this enlightening journey through our body!' - Dr. Steven Lin'The Balance Plan is a beautiful approach to improving hormonal health, grounded in the perfect synergy of personal journey, clinical experience and excellent health advice. The understanding that your diet, environment and lifestyle powerfully affects your hormonal balance and reproductive health will empower you with the knowledge and wisdom you need on your own journey to better health and wellness.' - Benjamin I.
