How Are You, Dad?

New fathers also need support to maintain their mental wellbeing - a FMCH-UK project

For many parents the birth of a baby is a happy time, but for some, it can be difficult.

Evidence shows more than 1 in 8  mothers may experience mental wellbeing issues in the period of time around childbirth.

Less well known, is that up to 1 in 10 fathers may also also experience issues with their mental wellbeing when their partner is pregnant or, after the birth of their child.

How Are We Going To Do This?

Gather a list of resources for new parents

One Step at a Time

Working in collaboration with parents who have lived experience, not for profits organisations & health professionals, we would like to co-ordinate a list of easily accessible resources available to men and their partners - to help support them during parenthood.

Contact  us to learn more about this cause and let us know about a resource in your area.
