If you're a fan of rigid gender role stereotyping that puts all of the blame for a couple's problems on the wife, then this is the book for you!

If not, then I would look elsewhere, although it does give decent advice from time to time, and I do like the support for stay-at-home dads.

Do you ever wish you could know what your husband was thinking? I do, because they seem to live on a different planet. Somehow, men see the world differently than we do, and sometimes that leads to miscommunication, and gets in the way of our relationships. This can be especially true during pregnancy and parenting, when both of your lives are turned upside down.

Hogan Hilling wrote the book Rattled to try and help women understand what their husband's are going through during pregnancy, and why they seem to be concerned with very different specifics. Hogan draws from his own experience as a father as well as his many years of teaching and working with expecting dads, and he says, "..if you really want to know how a new dad feels, then this book is for you."

Rattled was especially eye-opening. There are some hard-to-face truths presented in this book about how we tend to treat men, and as a woman, it is not easy to read! We have a tendency to be selfish and stomp on our husband's emotions. So, if you are not ready to be honest with yourself and face the reality of your own faults, you may not enjoy reading this.

On the other hand, if you are willing to take a good hard look in the mirror, and truly want to understand your husband better, this is a good start. It could save you a lot of trouble in the long run. I'm not even pregnant, but this book helped me to better understand my husband in general, and understand some of the things he was going through when I was pregnant.

I found out why dads don't always act as excited about the pregnancy as moms, and that dads really want to be involved. Your husband wants to be your primary support person, and this book will show you how.

Format: Paperback
As an RN and Parent Educator for 30 years, I found Hogan Hilling's new book "Rattled: What He's Thinking When You're Pregnant" to be a refreshing, intriguing book that I would recommend to every pregnant woman I meet! This book fills a huge gap that exists in pregnancy and childbirth books- it's a book that is written for pregnant women that describes what their husband wishes she would understand about how he is responding to their pregnancy. It's pretty much the pregnancy and childbirth version of Men Are From Mars and Women Are From Venus.

Since I work with pregnant and new families with babies under the age of one year, I have witnessed many, many times exactly what Hilling describes, namely the way some women become totally absorbed in their babies and being the best mother and almost completely ignore their husbands. I agree with him that this is sometimes the start of the unraveling of some relationships and marriages. If more women read Rattled before having their baby, hopefully they would consciously try to balance their intense feelings of motherhood with the importance of maintaining and developing their relationship with their spouse. The best thing for a baby is happy, loving parents!

Rattled is an easy read that leaves you contemplating the many key points Hogan addresses in his book. I really liked his statement "A good way to approach parenthood is to view parenting as two people (a mom and a dad) sharing one role and not two people sharing two roles." This book is all about collaborating as a team to parent your new baby.

Thank your for writing such a helpful book!

Rattled is the book every dad wishes they had given their wives during that critical first pregnancy! Better than allowing her to read your mind, since there is a lot of anxiety and confusion there during pregnancy for guys, this book can really help moms understand the perspective of dads during the transition to parenthood. Chock-full of direct advice and discussion points, Rattled and the companion for dads Pacifi(her) can really help new parents develop empathy and perspective for what the other parent is going through. If you are looking for a gift that can make a difference for an expecting couple in your life, Hilling's books are a great idea. A great addition the library of any organization that works with expecting couples too!
