Reaching rural dads in partnership with SMS4dads

Research shows that dads are hard to reach in parenting education and their engagement with health services isn’t great. This is compounded for rural and remote dads who often experience limited services. Therefore, the Alliance has partnered with SMS4dads in a campaign to raise awareness around the important contribution dads make to their baby’s development and the support he provides the mother.

SMS4dads is now available free to all dads throughout Australia. It is specifically designed to provide information and support to dads from 12 weeks into their partner’s pregnancy and throughout the first year of parenthood.
