Abstract

There is a growing understanding of the role and place of men in maternity care generally and for fathers of babies in neonatal care in particular. This review offers a systematic narrative review on issues affecting fathers, whose babies are admitted to neonatal units. Twenty-seven papers in the review highlighted four key themes: stress & anxiety; information; gender roles and emotions.
