A new study has revealed some surprising results, giving a true insight to the minds and habits of new dads and dads-to-be.
Of the 2000 surveyed, 28% of dads-to-be felt they were not ready to be a father during the pregnancy. Troy Jones, comedian, dad and creator of BEING DAD, believes the results from the survey provide a real eye opener, 'Our research found that 5% of new dads suffer from depression after the birth, this alone shows just how important it is to give more support to first time dads. There are many different support systems in place for the women, but the men appear to be largely left out of the process once pregnant! Perhaps this goes some way to explain why 11% of marriages breakdown within one year of birth?'
