Midwifery Today Issue 51 Theme: Fathers In Pregnancy and Birth

Dads feel all kinds of ways about taking part in their children’s births: ambivalent, joyous, helpful, helpless, awed, scared, bonded, confused. In Issue 51, eleven articles about fathers’ involvement in birth address every conceivable angle to this increasingly popular birth option. Articles on ultrasound, natural family planning, the “call” to midwifery, placenta previa and much more round out the issue.
