Bringing baby home: UK fathers in the first year after the birth

This review of empirical evidence about UK fathers and fatherhood in the first postnatal year, explores who fathers are; what they do as caregivers, and what influences this; what impact they have (on children and mothers); and how services engage with them. The review finds that NHS systems are not set up to engage with, assess and support new fathers, despite clear evidence that there is a strong case for routine engagement with them in the perinatal period.
