Getting pregnant and becoming older is not just a significant period for women. Getting older is just as substantial for the soon to be father. In our practice we notice that soon that expectant fathers also have questions about being pregnant, childbirth and the time after. Come to the consultation hour and let us know how we can support you as well.
Because recent research shows that fathers-to-be also want to be informed about pregnancy and childbirth, David Borman, a male midwife and a father himself create a special course just for men. Because we received so many enthusiastic responses on this course, we brought a part of David’s course to Haarlem. The course “Tackling things for expecting fathers – The Childbirth” or “Aanpakken voor aanstaande vaders – de Bevalling” will be given in ultrasound center de Schoot.
Soon to be dad?
Becoming a dad soon? Let us support you with all your dad-questions about leave at work, approach or childbirth.
In addition to the leave you can take parental leave as a partner. Each parent with children younger than eight years old are entitled to this by law.
TACKLING THINGS FOR EXPECTING FATHERS
In The Netherlands the presence of a father is desired and the norm. What his role is exactly is unclear for a lot of men. David Borman, male midwife, researcher and trainer developed the course “Tackling things for expecting fathers” or “Aanpakken voor aanstaande vaders – de Bevalling” in Dutch.
