More about fathers and childbirth
I recently considered issues for new fathers . Interestingly the latest MIDIRS essence focuses on this issue. Links from here led me to the fathers intsitute, a resource for new fathers also with information for health professionals about fatherhood. This site includes a data base of evidence about the benefits of including fathers in the care of the woman and child. It is a UK site however much of the information is relevant in New Zealand also.
