Supporting fathers in early parenthood

January 30, 2019

This morning I spoke in Westminster Hall about support for father's through birth and early childhood, and some of the challenges with mental health in those early days and weeks amongst young men.


This is not to detract from the challenges of motherhood in any way, but simply to highlight the challenges and barriers that also exist for men, including the progress that is still needed on the cost and availability of paternity leave. I wanted to highlight the additional problems faced by low income families too.
