Fathers too #01

Fathers too

Becoming a father is a massive life change.

There may be anxieties about how you will cope with supporting your partner in labour. Talking this through with a midwife counsellor can turn these feelings around.

Many people do not realise that dads can get postnatal depression too. This can be due to anxiety about how you will adjust to being a father, or the extra responsibility, both financially and practically that come with starting a family.

Talking about these worries in a safe, open and confidential environment can be very helpful.
