Great Beginnings Start Before Birth: Strengthening Families through Early Prenatal Support Services and Father Involvement (Poster Session 1)
Comprehensive yet accessible, this session synthesizes research on father involvement and prenatal development to establish a rationale for fostering positive father-child relationships and strengthening families through the promotion of parenting models that incorporate fathers as active participants in the care of their child beginning in the prenatal period. This session will also describe the Healthy Families America (HFA) Prenatal Project, "Great Beginnings Start Before Birth," which was initiated with the goal of improving and strengthening family life by providing prenatal home visiting services based on best practice standards that include engaging fathers right from the start.
