Perinatal Partner’s Service

This service provides a confidential space for fathers and non-birthing parents to discuss challenges during their journey to parenthood. It includes goal-setting activities and signposts to relevant services.

Why are we supporting Fathers and non-birthing parents/partners?

Becoming a new dad or non-birthing parent, especially with an unwell partner, can be extremely stressful. The service helps navigate this transition through one-on-one or group discussions. It emphasises the role of fathers/non-birthing parents in infant development and addresses practical challenges like finances and housing.

Concerns about a partner’s wellbeing is acknowledged and guidance is offered on managing this unfamiliar role. Everything disclosed remains confidential, except in cases of potential abuse, neglect, or self-harm, where adherence to safeguarding policy is required.   

The service aims to provide both practical and emotional support, creating a sense of community amongst fathers and non-birthing parents.
