Here are two videos celebrating Fathers Day 2017 that midwives and health professionals could use when inspiring new families around the birth of a child.
The first video is from a UNICEF early years campaign focusing on how the infant’s brain develops.
“Good parenting in early childhood, especially during the first 1,000 days, sparks neural connections in children’s brains, laying the foundation for their future successes. Research suggests that when children positively interact with their fathers, they have better psychological health, self-esteem and life-satisfaction in the long-term.”
The second video is a celebration of fatherhood from Africa.com:
