How Are You, Dad?
New fathers also need support to maintain their mental wellbeing
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.

"Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves"
Henry David Thoreau
Working together with activists such as Mark Williams and Dr Andy May, our team at the Foundation for Mother & Child Health (FMCH-UK) realised to help support mothers improve their mental wellbeing, their partners also need support.
We want to inspire and support the community and have a desire for actions to speak louder than words.
