Ratings and Reviews
Good ideas, not so good execution
This app has the right idea. I’m glad that there is an app for expecting fathers. We all know that there are plenty for mothers. It’s full of helpful information. However, the lite version and the paid version are hardly different. Also, some of the articles are so poorly written that they can be hard to read. With a few tweaks, this could be an awesome app.
Paid vs Free
If you are debating the paid app vs the free app. Go with the free. I have them both and there is zero difference between the two. I paid for the app because the fee one claimed “today’s page is blank. To see more upgrade to our paid app.” I upgraded and the pages were still blank for those days on the paid app. So save your money. Not overly impressed with this app as it doesn’t give new information on a daily basis but seems to be more on a weekly basis. Information will stay the same for days on end. Overall I am less than impressed.
Hi slick willy,
I added new information to the app. Blank pages should not happen anymore. Thank you for your hint. BR, SB-Apps.com
It was decent. Had a few facts that were good. But wish it was more like mom apps with videos and pictures and things like that. Can't complain for it being free though.

WATCH: Pregnant DAD was arrested because of his baby bump
A trans couple shared their journey to parenthood on a TLC special, My Pregnant Husband.
According to reports, Precious Brady-Davis met her husband Myles while working at a Chicago LGBTQ center. The couple went through a horrific experience after Myles' baby bump was mistaken for stolen goods at a store and he was arrested on suspicion of theft.
Myles was accused of shoplifting in a Chicago H&M, while shopping for clothes on the day of his baby shower.
“Someone just assuming because he’s a Black man and he has a bump that he was stealing. He was not. And this is on the day of our baby shower — handcuffed him and threw him to the ground." Precious said.
The duo welcomed a daughter, Zayn, after the whole debacle.

"I got pregnant by my father at 14.
" A Kazakh woman told how she survived violence and PTSD
Dinara (not her real name) is 39 years old. She recently began to leave the house and returned to work after a long period of depression. The woman says she was just sitting on the couch. Five years. She actually only went to the store.
"I was sitting on the couch in front of the TV all this time and got so fat that the couch under me was sagging. I stopped taking care of myself: dirty hair, unkempt appearance. I did not want to communicate with anyone, I just sat ...".
Dinara did not know then that she had PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and that it needed treatment. But she knew exactly where her problems came from.
"I was ashamed"
In 1992 Dinara turned 12 years old. She lived with her father, who was recently released from prison. The man, according to Dinara, was serving a term for having severely beaten a fellow villager. In the village where they lived then, there were only 14 houses, everyone knew each other. Dinara's mother, according to her, fled from the village, taking her youngest son: her husband often raised his hand to her.
One day, as the woman recalls, her father covered all the windows in the house with sheets and ordered her to walk around naked.
"I resisted, I was ashamed," says Dinara. "But he insisted on it, saying that all children do this in their homes. He also undressed himself and walked naked around the house."
Dinara said that for two years she was periodically raped and beaten by her father. She stopped going to school, her father insisted that she work part-time at the market. Dinara says that she could not run away or tell anyone about what was happening at home, because she was in a state of fear almost all the time, and besides, her father did not give her documents. The woman also claims that she had to terminate an early pregnancy as a result of incest.
“I got pregnant from my father at the age of 14. His sister came and took me to the hospital where her friend worked,” says Dinara, “it hurt, despite anesthesia. At some point I lost consciousness. My body hurt, I remember "the street I walked along later. There were metal fences around the building. I leaned on the bars of this fence, pressing my back against it when people passed, I didn't want them to see that the back of my dress was covered in blood."
According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Kazakhstan, in 77% of cases of sexual abuse of children in Kazakhstan, the perpetrators are people from the child's close circle: fathers, stepfathers, relatives, family friends or neighbors. According to Dina Smailova, the leader of the NeMolchi.kz movement, more than 200 Kazakh children were subjected to sexual violence and harassment in the first three months of 2019.of the year.
"I didn't do anything"
Dinara says that she subsequently ran away from her father. After more than 20 years, she wants to bring him to justice, the woman wrote a statement to the police, a confrontation has already taken place. Dinara's father denies her accusations. He says that in the village where he lives, everyone knows and respects him. According to him, the residents of the village do not believe what Dinara says. He has two children from his second marriage, the children are already studying at the university.
"I don't know why my daughter is spreading dirty rumors about me. To be honest, I'm already tired of these lies. I want to be left alone," says the man. "I didn't do anything like that. And I don't remember for her to get pregnant. I don't remember my daughter getting pregnant by anyone at all."
What is PTSD?
Psychologists say that cases of violence and incest are often hushed up in Kazakhstan when it comes to children.
“Children are often not trusted and they try to hide the facts, not to hear the reality because of fear and shame. The more people know about the right to immunity, the better it will be for children,” commented a specialist working with children, adolescents and adults, psychologist Nadezhda Khasanova.
According to psychologists, those who experienced childhood abuse, in most cases, may suffer from PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).
PTSD is a mental trauma that occurs in people after a strong shock. The term was originally applied to veterans of the Vietnam War, as well as veterans of the Afghan War. According to the website of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, 15% of Vietnam War veterans suffer from PTSD.

Clinical researcher and researcher at the Center for Health and Outcomes Evaluation (CHEOS) Nadia Khan, in one of her articles noted that out of 683,000 women who are sexually abused annually, 94% experience PTSD symptoms in the first two weeks after being raped, and 30% report symptoms after 9 months.
One out of every 10 victims of rape is a man. Men in these cases are much more likely to develop PTSD.
"Consequences are hard to miss"
Psychologist Nadezhda Khasanova says that the experience of violence always has consequences regardless of gender, age and requires serious treatment.
Psychologists also often say that childhood trauma can grow into increased libido in adulthood, a tendency to same-sex relationships can also arise, in the same way, on the contrary, a person can become asexual or subconsciously strive for relationships with people who are similar in type to rapist.
"The consequences are hard to miss. These are sleep disturbances, severe mood swings, loss of appetite, lack of interest in life, aggression, as if without an external cause, addiction to alcohol or drugs, thoughts of suicide. A person may be disturbed by diseases, bodily symptoms: headache , discomfort in the region of the heart, and so on," says Nadezhda Khasanova.
"Every thought of sexual intercourse disgusted me"
Dinara could not build relationships with men for a long time. She says she got married without romance or courtship. I just decided it was time to start a new life. Her husband worked at the same market in Almaty, where she then worked. In marriage, Dinara had difficulties with intimate relationships with her husband.
"Any thought about sexual intercourse caused me disgust, panic and pain. The pain was especially terrible. Sex brought me a mixture of mental and physical pain. Naturally, I avoided this," recalls Dinara.
In 2003, Dinara gave birth to a daughter. The intimate side of married life still did not suit her husband. Soon the couple broke up. According to Dinara, the reason was her rejection of sex, combined with the reproaches of her husband's parents, who did not like that she married not a virgin.
"I'm still afraid to be alone in the house"
Dinara did not leave thoughts of suicide. She does not remember how many times she picked up a mirror and a knife. Looking in the mirror, she held the knife to her throat.
"I'm still afraid to be alone in the house. If I'm left alone, then terrible thoughts come to me. I have such a feeling at these moments that the clouds are gathering over me and something terrible is about to happen," Dinara admits .
Now Dinara is often worried about her daughter. The family lives in the village and every time Dinara's daughter travels to Almaty, she finds no place for herself.
"The thought that she might suffer at the hands of men frightens me," says Dinara.
The woman says that she can even follow her daughter to Almaty and wait for her at the Sairan bus station.
How to diagnose PTSD?
Only a specialist can truly diagnose PTSD. However, in order to reach the psychotherapist's office, you need to analyze your condition. Psychologist Nadezhda Khasanova advises you to pay attention to some signs if you think that you or your loved one may have PTSD.
The alarm does not go away. All people are subject to stress to varying degrees and after traumatic events they can experience a variety of negative emotions up to clouding of consciousness. But in most cases, these emotions subside naturally over time (usually within a month). If, on the contrary, they increase over time or roll in waves again and again, this may be a sign of PTSD.
Reluctance to think about the past. Desire to avoid people, places and objects that may remind you of the traumatic event. Intrusive memories. Intrusive thoughts and images, memories that you cannot control. They can be in the form of images that arise in the mind, or intrusive dreams. In contrast, there may be memory problems or blocking of unwanted memories.
Changes in the process of thinking. You have changed your opinion or assessment of something after a traumatic event. Negative thoughts about others, certain places, situations, and oneself may appear.
Symptoms of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) may appear. This refers to the symptoms of OCD, in which a person commits compulsive actions that may appear after an incident of violence. Stress can turn the usual order in a person’s reality, so he tries to put everything back in place and streamline. This can lead to a desire to constantly wash your hands, an obsession with order or symmetry.
These are just a few possible signs of PTSD, of course, only a psychiatrist or psychotherapist can determine them more accurately.
How is PTSD treated?
Psychotherapy and medication can help treat PTSD. Doctors prescribe antidepressants and mood stabilizers to control anxiety.
There are three main psychological treatments for people with this disorder:
Cognitive behavioral therapy : with her, the emphasis is on a person’s behavior and way of thinking, the specialist tries to help correct them in order to level the effect of the injury.
Exposure therapy - good for panic attacks. They try to help a person cope with fear, while the traumatic event is figuratively restored, sometimes with the help of drawings or even visiting the scene of the incident under the supervision of a psychologist. The method is not suitable for everyone.
Desensitization and treatment of the consequences of trauma with the help of eye movements . It is assumed that the eye movements used during the procedure trigger processes similar to those occurring in sleep during the phase of rapid eyeball movement. The method provides quick access to the traumatic material stored in the subconscious, which is subjected to accelerated processing.

Western experts have been talking about treating PTSD with ecstasy in recent years. And in 2017, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo authorized the use of medical marijuana to treat PTSD. However, these techniques are criticized because some researchers believe that narcotic drugs may, on the contrary, increase symptoms and increase aggressiveness. Plus, this experience cannot be extrapolated to Kazakhstan, whose laws do not allow such use of drugs.
"Thrown away the sofa"
Kazakhstani psychologists advise in the treatment of PTSD to focus on working with specialists and not be ashamed to speak openly about your problem.
"It's very important to talk about this," says Nadezhda Khasanova. "And if there are people who can support, give warmth and accept, then this is a great addition. Unfortunately, often the victim takes the blame for the incident. But the rapist is always to blame, not a victim. Often people do not talk about the experience of violence because they are used to being alone in their pain, but if you look back, there are only a few of us who have not been subjected to any violence."
Dinara completed a course of psychotherapy. The woman cannot say that she coped with all her problems, but she says that she still felt better. She began speaking openly and publicly about her childhood abuse experience. Dinara says that she has restored relations with her husband: after he found out that her behavior was the result of an injury, he changed his mind about her. The woman started her own small business.
"And I threw the sofa away," Dinara smiles.
We would like to thank psychologist Nadezhda Khasanova, specialist in work with children, adolescents and adults, for her help in collecting materials on PTSD.
I am pregnant by my mother's husband
A difficult life
My parents divorced when I was sixteen. However, before that, we lived in a state of stress for many years: mother sawed father for any reason. One day he had a stroke. Mom, although she cursed that now dad had finally fallen on her shoulders (and she had dragged everything on herself before), she still left him. She did massage, treated with some herbs, for which she went to Ryazan to some kind of old woman healer.
Whether the herbs helped, or something else, but dad recovered very quickly and a year later he not only walked well, but also ran. In general, he ran away from his mother as soon as he recovered. He moved to live with his school sweetheart, saying: "I want at least the rest of my life, no matter how much I have left, to live happy." Mother, out of habit, led long monologues about her father's ingratitude, but now no one dared to condemn her. If earlier all our relatives and acquaintances considered my father a saint, since he tolerated my mother for almost two decades, then after his departure, everyone sided with my mother. And our life has become even more unbearable. My brother was lucky, he went to the army, and all my mother's moans and nit-picking fell upon me.
A real man
And then I met him. Dima was so... real, strong, brave, cheerful. And the eyes are green, some kind of cat, like Jensen Ackles.
I began to disappear with him in the evenings, and my mother got angry. She said that I needed to prepare for the first session, and not go out with the guys. Well, further along the knurled one: that I’ll get out of the institute and go to work as a cleaner, and if I bring a child in a hem, she will pull me by the hair with her own hands, she won’t help, it’s enough that my brother and I are sitting on her neck. Scandals every day.
I, the fool, dragged Dima to meet his mother. I thought she would see that everything is serious with us, and stop worrying about me. Mom liked Dima. She even began to address him at first as "you", which surprised me at all, since she had never been particularly delicate.
Dima became our salvation. After my father left, our apartment began to fall apart: the taps were leaking, the tiles in the bathroom fell off, the clock stopped, the appliances were electric. Mom seemed not to notice, or maybe she was more comfortable living in a house that was just as broken as she was. In one of Dima's visits, his mother asked him to fix something and could not praise him enough for his work. I, too, could spend hours admiring how my boyfriend works: he did everything quickly and well. Then we peeled potatoes together for speed, and he also cooked better than my mother and I. The next time, by the time he came, my mother planned to bake pies, which was absolutely the highest degree of approval - she baked a couple of times a year, on big holidays.
A couple of months later, my mother herself raised the issue of Dima moving to us. He was from Donetsk, lived somewhere in a hostel. I was both pleased and strange that my mother, with her eternal suspicion of visitors, herself insisted that he live with us.
Those were the happiest months of my life. Even my mother could not spoil my mood, although, we must give her credit, with the advent of Dima in our house, she became much more cheerful, grumbled less and generally pulled herself up. I was only happy to see that my mother took care of herself, stopped going home in a washed dressing gown. Even our apartment shone: my mother and I cleaned it for Dima's move.
My boyfriend quickly figured out "who has sour cream in the house" and managed to make friends with his mother. She even promised to prescribe it when we get married. Although there were problems: Dima is a citizen of another state, it was necessary to wait.
And when he offered to start repairs before the wedding, my mother was completely subdued. Together with Dima, they went to the construction market, chose tiles and wallpapers. I could not get enough of it: my mother finally got carried away with something and stopped bothering me.
Then I had to leave for an internship, we called Dima every day and corresponded via WhatsApp, he said how much he loves and misses me.
Someone else's wedding
Of course, I really missed you, I barely waited for the train to stop, and threw myself on Dima with hugs. And he kind of answered. At home, my mother set the table, bought a cake. And when we drank for my arrival, she quietly said that she and Dima had decided to get married. I thought she was joking or it was some kind of stupid dream. Mother is almost forty, and Dimka is 28, if he left me, then to some model, and certainly not to an evil aunt with cellulite. "You're too old for him," was all I said.
Mom said that she was only 38, she was a young woman, and the difference of 10 years in the modern world is a trifle. That her friend also married a guy who is 14 years younger than her. And she finished me off with the phrase: after the betrayal of her father, she has the right to do the same, not to think about others and finally live for herself.
I thought Dima would get up and say that he loved me and would stay with me. It's ridiculous to compare me and my mother! But he was silent.
Return of prodigal Dima
If I could go somewhere, I would. I often began to spend the night with my grandmother, although she also has a bad temper: you won’t leave without interrogation and you won’t return later than nine, and just a little - she shouts: “If you don’t like it, leave.” And then I decided that I would not make life easier for them, it was necessary - let them move out themselves. I still loved Dima, although his betrayal hurt me painfully. Probably, in the depths of my soul I hoped that he would come to his senses and return to me.
One day my mother was not at home, I was sitting in the kitchen, Dima came in. He said something insignificant, and I burst into tears. He tried to console me. Comforted.
Dima did not promise that he would leave his mother, he did not say that he was with her only for the sake of convenience, but this was clear anyway. We began to sleep with him when mother was not at home. Once it was even when she was sleeping, and he entered my room. We just went crazy then. The sense of danger turned on him as much as it did me. It must have happened that night. I got pregnant.
Mom knows everything
I thought that now Dima would stay with me. After all, it is I who will give birth to a child for him, but the mother will no longer be able to, she is old. But he said he would stay with his mother. I do not believe that he loves her, he certainly endures for the sake of citizenship, registration, and he is comfortable with her.
