A Birth Story: Dad's-Eye View

 
This is a birth story. It’s a dad’s-eye view of what it was like to experience the labor and delivery of your first child. I can tell you in advance that it has strengthened my belief that nature knew what it was doing when it set it up in a way that women would be the ones to birth babies. Why?

Because most men couldn’t handle it. Period. I don’t know about you, but if I get a cold, I milk it for all it’s worth. You would think the end of the world was near. I’m betting you might know a man or two or three like this.

So I’m going to make a big statement. In this man’s humble opinion, women are the stronger sex and it’s time we acknowledge this. It’s my hope that this story serves to support this view.

And lastly, I want to let men know that it’s ok to share their vulnerabilities with others. I heard it said by someone much wiser than I that it’s your secrets that make you sick.

Breakdown To Breakthrough

Welcome to my world!  My name is Adam Michael Brewer and at the age of 48, I’m a first-time father to an amazing 3 month old son named Skye.  It’s been a wild ride getting to this point and continues to be so. But I couldn’t be happier right now. Everyday is something new.

It’s here that I’ll share my stories about the trials & tribulations of becoming a first-time father. I grew up in Ohio but have lived in LA for 22 action-packed years now. So these days, I Live And Dad In LA. One thing’s for sure, I made lots of mistakes along the way but have learned so much from each experience. It’s my intention to share some of the wisdom I’ve gained as well as keep you up to date with the new adventures I’m having with Skye and my amazing partner @lizarch (Skye’s momma). Thanks for joining me!

For some, being a first-time father at 48 doesn’t sound like a big deal. There are those men out there that have...
