Classes to aid dads-to-be

MEN whose partners are expecting their first child have been urged to attend a male-only preparation course.

The four-week scheme, led by midwives, provides expectant fathers with key information for the upcoming birth.

It takes place at the Pregnancy and Parents Centre by Fountainbridge, with classes starting on March 5.

Participants will be shown how to support their partner during birth, how to change nappies, and coping with crying and a lack of sleep.
