In the UK there have been more studies of fathers across the transition to parenthood than at any other life stage: as of June 2018, 603 records in our comprehensive library of UK research are key-worded ‘perinatal’, which we define as the period from conception to twelve months after the birth. By comparison, 408 records are key-worded ‘work’, and 282 ‘separation’ (which includes divorce).
Because the perinatal period is so crucial to maternal and child health and because almost all fathers are in contact with services during this time, we are devoting this whole Report to it.
But even within this, due to limitations on word length, we must narrow our focus. We have therefore chosen the antenatal period for detailed investigation, although we include short sections on the birth and the neonatal period.
Integrated throughout this Report are findings from Phase 2 of our data.
