Ten years ago in 1997, The Chicago Tribune reported a lack of availability of information for new and expectant fathers. At the time, new programs in various cities across the country were meeting with exceptional responses from participants. New fathers who partook in these pilot programs reported feeling better equipped for their new role, and their wives expressed feeling increased support from their partners. This support has become even more crucial to the health of families, as increasing numbers of mothers take on the dual role of mother and working woman.
