Congratulations on becoming a Dad!

Here at Dads to Be we encourage you to engage with becoming a Dad in your own unique way. We also hope that you will be as practically prepared as you can for the birth and beyond.

Most men say that it is one of the most life re-shaping events of their lives, although they didn’t necessarily realise it at the time!

Dads to Be Workshops

In order to engage well with this amazing event and to be informed and ready to help alongside your partner, we would encourage you to come to a first-time Dads to Be workshops in one of the hospitals. We have been running them for over ten years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are they for?

The workshops are for first time Dads to Be. They are for Dads to Be only and average around 35 men.

Who runs them?

They are run by a Midwife Antenatal Educator and a Dads to Be Facilitator.

How long is the Workshop?

They are a single one-off evening event which runs for 90 minutes.

What makes them different from an ante-natal class?

Although they are not an antenatal class, they cover the key parts of the birth process, but more from a man’s involvement and point of view. They also give an opportunity to meet with other men at the same stage. Some of the practical topics covered include:

What is my role through the birth process?

Now that there are three - how does that affect us?

Once home, how do we juggle; time, sleep, new roles, energy, money, sex, parents, work etc.?

What do previous participants say?

‘Reading about birth is one thing but attending this workshop has been a great eye opener’

‘Great delivery – appreciated the humour and sensitivity’

‘The best pre-Dad advice I have had to date!’
