Report of a small but interesting study about the impact of birth experience on dads.
Entertaining and informative blog from a new dad about taking baby home ends with great quote “Being a new dad is a bit like getting a new best friend. And like all friendships, the more you put in to it, the more you get out.”
Interesting tool for getting you to think about what you love about your partner, I think would be a great thing to look at in those first few weeks with a new baby for both mums and dads.
Really nice blog giving tips on fatherhood – well worth a read by any expectant or new dad I would have thought.
Really useful explanation of the new right for dads’ to attend some antenatal appointments – agree with Fatherhood Institute that would be better if it was paid but it is a step in the right direction
There are places available on a Mantenatal dads-only antenatal workshop that I am running on Saturday morning 22nd November in Cambridge. This is a great way for expectant dads to meet other dads and explore pregnancy, birth and early parenting from their point of view. A dad who came this Saturday said “It was great being a male focussed relaxed environment, I don’t know why more people don’t offer this!” Expectant dads can book through the NCT website – link below – please pass on to anyone you think might be interested, thanks Jenny x

Really useful summary of the research around fathers and birth
Really thought provoking blog about dads involvement
Really nice blog from one dad reflecting on when he found out he was going to become a dad.
