Granville, OH (PRWEB) March 9, 2005
The stories of Laci Peterson, Lori Hacking, and Lisa Underwood are retold over 150 times a year; pregnant women killed by their partner. WhatÂs Your Pregnant Man Thinking? provides advice for women to avoid their becoming the next victim. It profiles the changes in the behavior of men and relationships during pregnancy. As prenatal women struggle with surging hormones, strange cravings and massive physical changes, fathers-to-be are also going through internal struggles. Robert Garrett Rodriguez, Ph.D., M.P.H., M.S., explores their thoughts and emotions in WhatÂs Your Pregnant Man Thinking?: A Roadmap For Expectant & New Mothers (now available through AuthorHouse).
WhatÂs Your Pregnant Man Thinking? replaces the fiction surrounding menÂs behavior with fact. Rodriguez illuminates the similarities and differences between expectant moms and dads and helps women navigate the often Âmisunderstood territoryÂ of their partnerÂs actions. He also reveals how mutual understanding can propel couples through this demanding time and into a loving relationship, that survives the parental challenges ahead.
The first half of the book details how and why menÂs behavior changes, while the second half offers ways to strengthen a relationship during pregnancy and after the birth. Brimming with practical exercises for couples, the book presents heartening insight into the lifelong journey of love, from being a couple to becoming a family.
Rodriguez addresses a wide range of topics, such as what men think about during these nine months; why some men lose themselves in work, old friends, hobbies or almost anything at a time when they are needed most; and how couples can make the pregnant relationship the best time theyÂve had in their lives.
ÂAfter studying the behavior of expectant fathers and couples for (more than) 25 years, IÂve heard the yearnings, dreams, exploits, confessions and challenges of expectant fathers during pregnancy,Â Rodriguez writes. He infuses WhatÂs Your Pregnant Man Thinking? with the knowledge, he has gained, and the result is a valuable roadmap for women on their journey through a time that is fraught with emotion and confusion.
Rodriguez holds doctorates in psychology and health care administration and master degrees in health risk management, public health, research, and business administration. His nationwide lectures captivate audiences with his fascinating and passionate attitude. He is a member of Mensa and has published articles in parenting magazines and online journals.
