On International Men’s Day – The SCBU Dads Team talk to Tiny Lives
On International Men’s Day, Tiny Lives spoke to Dad James about his experience having a premature baby and finding the SCBU Dad’s Team.
‘Having a premature baby, especially during COVID, is a real challenge for mums and for Dads. Finding out there was a group of Dad’s I could talk to was amazing. The lads were such a good support to me, I actually ended up joining the team!
Watching my son Ethan go from strength to strength has been brilliant. The lads have offered advice, support and care (mostly at a distance due to COVID) and have loved seeing updates about him.
I’m so glad I had the Dad’s team on hand to support me and my little family.’
About the SCBU Dad’s Team
The team is made up of Dads who have experienced life on the Unit. They’re there to chat and offer support to dads that are currently on the Neonatal Unit with their child. Meetings are very relaxed and all Dads are welcome.
They also have a closed Facebook page for extra support and a mobile number (07305869344) which you can call at any time (please leave a message and one of the Dads Team volunteers will aim to get back to you within 48hrs).
