Provides expectant fathers with tools and resources to support them and their families.
In 2017 when Birthing Dads Founder Steven Kennedy had a rough trot after the birth of his son (https://birthingdads.org/blog/f/paternal-mental-health—the-danger-of-birth-support) he researched evidence around the topic of men at birth to better understand his own experience. He discovered the health system supporting birth is in crisis and many of the statistics that define modern birth (cesarean, birth trauma, inductions) are heading in the wrong direction.
He discovered that many men are unprepared for the experience of birth and this could actually be contributing to the poor outcomes. Steven decided to create Birthing Dads to see if the statistics could be turned around by engaging men more effectively in the process.
