Cis Males undergo several physical and mental challenges through pregnancy and early parenthood.  Discover what they are and how to support your Father through this period. 

*We approach this module purely from a cis male gendered perspective, this is because there is no current research for parents who identify differently. However, there are considerations that can be applied to other parents, and this is discussed during the units.

STUDY HOURS 1

Michele Odent famously said “Fathers should be kept out of the birthing room” – Why? Is this “true”? 

Going deeper than just hormones we look at why this impacts on both the birth outcomes and the birth experience for both Parents and why this can lead to severe mental health problems in the Fathers and their Partners. 

STUDY HOURS 2

Taking a look into the postnatal period, we examine the roles of each Parent, and how it affect on the other. Why Fathers and Partners often feel relegated to 2nd place and what can be done about this. Looking at the experiences of cis, non gendered couples and same sex couples.
