The Deliver Series

The Deliver! series is all about helping babies get born.

Our first book, Deliver! A concise guide to helping the woman you love through labor is a compact, straight-talking field guide to labor support written expressly for men. We take fathers-to-be through the various stages of labor and birth, clearly explaining what a woman is experiencing and – most importantly – suggesting the many ways in which her partner can help. Together, we believe, they can make a birth a wonderfully positive event that builds on – and strengthens – the love and trust that is at the heart their relationship.

And moms-to-be, if you’re going to get your partner to read just one book before your baby is born, this is the book you should hand him!

While our main motivation in writing Deliver! was to offer dads a resource that they can’t find anywhere else, the book is also a great read for sisters, girlfriends, guy friends, and even granddads and grandmoms, all of whom can make for wonderful birth partners.

Here’s what Winona M. Tan, OBGYN at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation has to say about Deliver! A concise guide to helping the woman you love through labor:

“Deliver! is very good. It’s concise and medically accurate. Most importantly, it’s all about how partners/spouses and medical staff can best support expectant moms — the approach that we should universally adopt as providers for women in labor.” 

Our next book, Deliver! The best birthing class you never took will be for moms themselves. Similarly concise and straight-forward, it will cover all the material that you expect to find in a typical birthing class. It’s a great primer for anyone unable to attend a class in person, and the perfect take-home companion for any class that you take.
