Expectant mums and dads in South Essex Get help in South Essex Dads network Dads network Dads have told us that they would like to meet up with other dads and would like more information about pregnancy, birth and becoming a parent. We are developing a network and some workshops for dads over the next few months. If you are an expectant or new dad who is interested in attending these groups or would like to be involved and could help us get this off the ground please contact us. This is what dads have said to us.... Everything is centered around the mum. A lot of men don't know what to expect, or where to go if they have questions. What to expect during labour and birth. I needed someone to talk to about the realities. No sleep, how to support mum and how I can help more. Information about the simple things. How to bath baby safely, feeding, changing nappies etc. Support with how to feel involved with baby, especially once I'm back at work. Would be good to be included more.
