For dad



Dad
Becoming a father is one of the most exciting things that will happen in your life. All of a sudden you are responsible for the beginning of a new person, a very special person who will grow up in this world looking to you for answers, and needing a fatherly influence. This is a huge responsibility but it is also a very rewarding and fun one!


As the initial excitement wears off it is possible for your emotions to be overlooked or underestimated. You are an essential part of your baby's life and it is important for you to keep up the communication with your partner. Keep involved in the planning process and attend classes with your partner. Allow your baby to play as big a part of your life as possible.

The Dad's section isn't just for Dad's, it is for partners wanting to know and understand what fathers-to-be and fathers are going through during this time also.

If you're planning to become a father you may want to check out the planning pages. Or likewise if your partner is expecting, the pregnancy pages are full of useful information for mums and dad's alike.
