The DadPad app is easy-to-use and is now free for dads and dads-to-be across Kent and Medway.
DadPad is packed with information to give new fathers guidance on how to develop the confidence and practical skills needed to help look after their babies’ physical and emotional needs.
Crucially, the app provides dads with guidance on how to support and seek help (when needed) for their partners and themselves as they adjust to their new roles.
