How is this course different to what you learn during antenatal classes?
The focus during antenatal classes is on understanding how your unborn child is developing, the processes of pregnancy, labour and childbirth, and how to care for your baby once it's born. The expectant mother often takes centre stage when it comes to the tools and information needed to deal with the transition to parenthood, and there are too many expectant dads who watch on in silence.
While it is mostly true that "nothing can prepare you for parenthood”, there are some things that as a dad-to-be you can do to get into the right head space before baby arrives. Preparing yourself mentally and emotionally during pregnancy can help you handle the changes that you will inevitably experience as an individual, and as a couple.
Daddy Cool has been designed by the MyMama team to give you insights from experts in various fields, and from experienced dads, so that you get a better idea of what to expect when you become DADDY.BOOK NOW

"As a parent-to-be you know that your life is going to change especially once the baby is born. The pregnancy stage is a very exciting period, yet a very challenging one. Everyone will try to give suggestions or share his opinion on how to be the perfect parent and for me it was very overwhelming especially when you start getting contradicting opinions. I decided to take the Daddy Cool course without much expectations but I must say that this was one of the best decisions I've taken during this period. The course was concise yet detailed enough to learn the essential basics and to share my concerns and get the answers I needed. The practice sessions were the cherry on the cake 'cause let's face it, how many times will you have the chance to learn and practice the most essential things like changing diapers, wash, put to sleep and feed a baby in front of a team of midwives. I know that nothing will prepare you 100% for parenthood but I must say that thanks to MyMama I feel I will have a pretty good start!"
"I took part in the Daddy Cool course and it exceeded my expectations by being extremely informative, practical, hands-on, funny and intimate. I learned so much about what to expect from the first few months of having a child and in just a few hours (with some goodies for the sponsors to boot!). Best part of it all - I went home to my wife and impressed her with what I had learned - no mean feat when you consider that she works in the medical profession directly involving kids!"
