The Dads and The Docs
About The Dads and The Docs
You get the gist of how this works now dads. Matty and Adam are remembering their time in hospital with the new member of the family and trying to help you be a bit more useful than they were. Adam also throws his mate under the bus and we hope he’s not divorced since! Best advice comes at the back end of the ep too. Would love a 5 star rating and review if you can spare a few seconds too. Cheers dads
Alright dads, your baby is here and you’re in the hospital. Dr Brendan Chan is a paediatrician and neonatal doctor who takes us through what to expect when you’re in the room with your brand new family. He tells us who comes in, what to expect, what dads normally do (including how they very weirdly make breakfast…..) and provides a whole heap of advice on how dads can help now their little one has entered the world. Dr Chan works out of the Epworth hospital in Melbourne and can easily be found with a google search. As always - we’d love a 5 star rating and review if you can find the time! and tell your mates!
This week we’re reflecting on Labour and the advice given by Dr Nettle in Part 1. We also give a whole bunch of non medical advice we wish we had at the end of the ep (hint: prepare for an ‘agricultural’ smell in the delivery room). It’s a pretty loose time and we felt as useless as tits on a bull during our delivery so hopefully this episode gives you a few tips on what to do in there so you can be of use (without passing out…..) We’d love if you could subscribe, rate 5 stars and review the show too and tell your other dads and partners!
Alright Dads, it’s time to hit the labour ward and meet the little alien who is about to change your life! Taking us through what happens during labour is the Doc who is as skilful as he is handsome - Dr Jonathan Nettle. This episode is full of advice for what dads can actually expect to happen during a birth and what they can do while their partner is in labour (hint: bring your pom poms). We cover both caesar and vaginal births and Doc Nettle tells us how dads can help in each case, what they should definitely NOT do (hint: drink some coffee) and also what to do if they are feeling like they might pass out…. It’s a wild time. Dr Nettle works out of Frances Perry Hospital in Melbourne and can easily be found via google. He’s a legend (and as we said, handsome - check out the videos on our socials!) We’d love if you could subscribe, rate 5 stars, review and tell your mates about the pod too.
Matty and Adam reflect on Episode 1 by taking clips from what Dr Scott had to say and expanding with their thoughts on the advice he gave. Matty explores how he reacted to a tragic miscarriage and how he would change his response after hearing what Dr Scott had to say. The boys also give a huge amount of non-medical advice that they wish they knew at the time and want to pass on to dads going through this period of time (like not worrying about having everything ready cause the shops remain open after you have a baby!). We’d love if you could subscribe, rate and review 5 stars and follow at @adamdensten and @matty_ef
Our first episode is about everything Dads can do to help during pregnancy. When our partners were pregnant, we didn’t really know where to look to find any information that we could action. So we asked someone who literally sees new dads every day what dads can do. From questions like what does he normally see from dads, to the funniest thing he’s ever seen from a dad, this episodes will have dads ready to help for the next 9 months. And next week we have part 2, where we reflect on Scott’s episode and add our nuggets of non-medical wisdom for the dads (and mums) out there. You can find Scott @drscottshemer on Instagram and through a google search, he’s a legend.
