Goal! Making antenatal courses work for men.


New guidance for antenatal education and reviews of evidence on the effects of perinatal parenting interventions and care during a child's early years are prompting midwives and others to think critically about what we offer. In particular, they prompt us to consider our work with fathers. Participative courses, with small group work as a core feature, enable women and men to learn in a way that is consistent with an adult learning model and to get to know others going through a similar life change. NCT antenatal courses are used as a case study to consider aspects of preparation against current criteria for good practice, based on evidence from a survey and qualitative feedback from fathers.
