2016 Babywearing in Canada Conference

Brian Russell, Dad Central Ontario with the Father Factor
Ottawa Birth and Wellness Centre – May 21, 2016, at 9:30 am
Dads bring something special into a child’s life – and it starts from the very first day. How dads parent and having everyone in the family pitching in from day one is incredibly important. Throughout the Father Factor seminar, Brian will highlight the experience of fathers today, describe the attachment between baby and dad looks like, and talk about how to support that early attachment, and how dads involvement helps support the breastfeeding relationship. Engaging fathers from the very beginning is essential to all who work with parents and in this seminar we will discuss factors that influence father involvement and the strengths in helping men father as best as they can.
