Father Involvement During Pregnancy, Birth, and Infancy.
Brooks, Rick
This paper, supporting father involvement in pregnancy, birth, and infant care, recommends that the father 1) acknowledge and accept the emotional impact of pregnancy and share this with his mate, and 2) mentally visualize himself in childbearing and childrearing roles. It suggests that multiple benefits accrue to all involved when the father participates in childbirth procedures and that the effects of active father involvement in infant rearing are "without a doubt positive." Fifty-two supporting books and articles are cited in the text and are listed alphabetically (by author) in the "References" section which comprises one-third of the paper. (MQ)
