Fathers' experiences of a mother and baby unit: a qualitative study
Kemp, N. 2011. Fathers' experiences of a mother and baby unit: a qualitative study. PhD Thesis Canterbury Christ Church University Department of Applied Psychology
Section A presents a literature review of the issues and challenges facing fathers in the postnatal period, in the context of an historical marginalisation of fathers in the study of child development. The review leads to a specific focus on the limited research evidencing the increased risk fathers face to their mental health, when coping with a partner's admission to a Mother and Baby Unit (MBU).
