Fathers play an important role in the lives and development of their children. Their influence begins even before birth—father involvement impacts maternal and child health in the prenatal period and beyond. In this webinar, presenters draw on their research and practice experience to discuss strategies to expand inclusion of fathers in services during pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood. Fully engaging with all parents and caregivers is the best way to support the well-being of children.
