Dad's on NICU

0 comments

I spent 4 and half month's in 3 different neonatal units. I can count on one hand the amount of times I spoke with another Dad. I find that quite sad, but totally get it. Being in an environment like NICU is new and scary. But because we want to appear as if we're the strong ones, we don't show our emotions or feelings.

 

I'd love to be able to break that stigma, that us blokes are tough and can put the weight of the world on our shoulders.

 

It'd be great to see some Dad's post on this forum with their experiences, or questions for other Dad's who may be able to answer.
