Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 14, 2006
Mothers-to-be rejoice. Now there is a way to bond with your partner as you begin your journey to becoming a parent. The Journey to Fatherhood is an interactive software program, which allows expectant fathers to record their fears, dreams and aspirations during the nine months their partner is pregnant. They can't take away the morning sickness, heartburn or delivery, but, hey, it's a start.
Published by Life's Little Journals, Journey to Fatherhood (http://www.journeytofatherhood.com) is an interactive computer software program, which turns an ordinary computer screen into a father's keepsake journal to his child, as a lifelong memory tool they can always share together. The product will launch on June 14th at 6 a.m. EST, just in time for Fathers Day, as this year's unique Fathers Day Gift Idea.
According to Gail Metcalf, Publisher of Journey to Fatherhood, "Through no fault of their own, men really do not get to "experience" the pregnancy. I wanted to create something where he can focus his energy on something productive, like thinking about how his life is going to change in 9 short months. I wanted to give him things to really ponder and think about, like his relationship with his father and what his role will be to this new baby. I believe thinking about these things before the baby arrives will really help in the transition in becoming a "father." I used pregnancy journals that provided me with thought provoking questions I would have never thought of on my own." The Journey to Fatherhood fills the void in the "market" for the Father-to-Be.
Journey to Fatherhood is unique in that, unlike some journals, where you stare at a blank page and think of something to write, Journey to Fatherhood includes thought provoking questions (and is fully illustrated) to open up a father's mind and let him express his thoughts easily, clearly and privately. Another special feature includes a voice component, where the father can actually record the answers to the journal questions or a special message to the new baby. In addition, all the default images in the journal can be replaced with dad's personal photos or videos. After childbirth, this memory keepsake can be downloaded and printed into a hardbound journal. It's just like typing into any word processing document on the computer. Quick and easy.
Gail says she knew this journal was going to be an instant success because it's a great gift that women can give their partners during their pregnancy. But it had to be more than just a book. We had to create a way to automate the journal for today's busy lives. Now with our automation to promote ease of use and the fact that men today love being on the computer and using technology, we have a product for today's market. Men want and need an avenue to express their feelings, hopes and dreams privately; and now they have a way to do that and leave a legacy their families can cherish always."
