DAD TALK

Mother & Baby (Australia) - - The Buzz -

We mums are great at chat­ting, shar­ing our ups and downs, and sup­port­ing each other, es­pe­cially dur­ing the ex­cit­ing jour­ney of new par­ent­hood – but dads of­ten aren’t.

An­te­na­tal ed­u­ca­tor Dean Beau­mont says while most of the fo­cus is on how mum is cop­ing, dads need sup­port, too. “Dads also feel anx­ious about their baby’s ar­rival. Men don’t tend to talk as much as women, and as a re­sult they are less likely to share their con­cerns, which can leave them feel­ing un­set­tled.”
