Guide for New Dads

The Fatherhood Institute has produced a very helpful 12-page guide 'Guide for New Dads', in partnership with the Department for Children, Schools and Families and Department of Health, which contains useful contacts/websites as well as essential information and tips for expectant and new fathers on parental responsibility, breastfeeding, paternity leave, post-natal depression, mutual gaze and skin-to-skin contact, and family separation to name just a few. The guide is organised under the following headings:

  • Welcome to fatherhood
  • You and Mum - working together
  • Your legal position
  • Earning and caring
  • Looking after your family's health
  • Communicating with your baby

The guide can be found under the Fatherhood Institute website.
