Great blog from an Australian writer about how dads experience of birth can be improved – totally agree that we need to focus on antenatal education created to meet the needs of dads.
A great piece from a dad about why paternity leave is so important and how to make the most of it.
Piece about new dads staying overnight in hospital – I agree that this is what dads want was only debating it with an expectant dad in class last night hospitals need to become more flexible to this.
Piece about dads role in labour, I do think that good antenatal education can help them to feel more involved.

Interesting piece looking at challenging assumptions that we make about dads
