There’s not a lot out there that speaks directly to dads. SMS4dads supports men in their role as fathers and increases awareness of their influence on baby’s brain development.

Because most family and parenting services are aimed at mums, they don’t engage directly with dads or provide specific materials and resources for them.


SMS4dads has been designed specifically for dads

Some messages provide tips and encouragement. Others are health related with developmental information related to looking after their baby, and also about being mindful of their own health and ways to support their partner.
