Introducing DadPad Neonatal.
DadPad Neonatal was developed after a need for better communication and support for dads of children in neonatal care was identified.
Being a new dad is already a difficult thing to come to terms with, and being a parent of a child in neonatal care potentially comes with a whole lot of other emotions and problems to deal with, but certainly with more information to be understood about your new baby.
Sometimes when a child is in neonatal care, there may be medical attention required for both baby and mother – initially leaving the dad to come to terms with the situation completely alone.
This can be traumatic and we hope the DadPad Neonatal will become a valuable tool to offer support and advice during this sensitive time.
Written in partnership with Minesh Khashu, Lead Consultant Neonatologist at Poole Hospital, Dorset, and developed with funding from National Lottery’s Awards4All, DadPad Neonatal will be launched initially in two units in early 2018 – Poole Hospital, Dorset, and Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske.
