Adjusting to fatherhood
Emotional struggles during pregnancy and parenthood are not exclusive to mothers. Dads can suffer too. In fact, they can feel just as helpless, confused, angry and overwhelmed as mums do!
Acknowledging this, Peach Tree ensures that dads’ health is an integrated part of our projects. Both our PEPP Talks and our documentary Because Parenthood Isn’t Always Peachy include sections to raise awareness about dads’ experiences, provide tools to help ease the adjustment and encourage dads to get support early on if they are struggling.
