Today, nearly 90% of fathers are present at the birth of their children.
They are also caretaking their children with increasing frequency. In
one third of the households with preschool children at home, if a parent
is the caretaker, it is the father. In 1975 fathers spent an average of
15 minutes per day with their children; by 1995 it was 2 hours. Fathers
are beginning to discover, and put into action, additional facets of
their instinctive nature, paternal love. Can it be a coincidence that
this timing correlates perfectly with fathers entering the birthing room
and becoming lovingly involved in their children’s arrival?
