Abstract:

I will address seven questions. (1) Why we should engage fathers? (2) What does the World Health Organisation say on this? (3) What are the needs and motivations of fathers? (4) What biological and brain changes take place in men when they cuddle a baby? (5) What difference does engaging fathers make to health outcomes for mother and baby? (6) How to organise engagement with fathers in a health service? (7) Why is it so difficult to maintain strong engagement with fathers?

Learning Objectives:

Objective 1: Describe the needs and motivations of fathers.

Objective 2: Describe the biology of fatherhood.

Objective 3: Describe why maternal health services find it inherently difficult to engage fathers.
