La préparation à la naissance et à la parentalité pour les pères

Abstract : Objective : Our study’s goal is to understand the professional’s framework who include future fathers within Birth & fatherhood preparation classes. What is the added value for such inclusion ? How do they choose and set up their preparation methods? Methods : We conducted a survey among twelve midwives either practicing in a hospital or in a liberal activity ( 7 women & 5 men) from multiple regions. Interviews were conducted following a semi opened quiz with 3 main categories. Results : Our study highlights that future fathers had hard times to open up about weakness and pain in a public assembly or in front of their wife. Conducting men’s only sessions could enable free their speech. Reason why some professional who young fathers speaking groups find it more effective to grasp and learn about men’s needs. Conclusion : Our study revealed that the professionals positioning regarding future fathers wasn’t consensual but adaptive. It is driven by their own vison of parenting , their own emotions & sensitivity as well as a limited health care system which doesn’t include the reimbursement of such training sessions. On the other hand it showcases the limited wherewithal and the lack of adequate resources to assess these Birth & fatherhood preparation classes & their adequations between the father’s needs & the current supply.
