Check out our new film!
We're really excited to launch our new film "Becoming Dad" Created by Leicestershire's Teenage Pregnancy Partnership, the project was prompted by a conversation with a young dad in Market Harborough, who felt there needed to be more support and information aimed at young dads and young dads-to-be.
We asked dads to share their experiences of the ante-natal period. They told us that
- Care was inconsistent
- Practitioner’s responses to parents varied depending on whether it was one or both parents at appointments
- Information was given and aimed at Mums not Dads
- There was a plea for specific information, advice and courses/parenting units for Dads
- Practical advice was wanted from how to tell your parents you are going to be a Dad, to bedtime routines and weaning
They told us they wanted better access to advice and support as well as practical tips.
We hope that "Becoming Dad" will be the first of a short series of films covering pregnancy, the birth and beyond.
