Calling all partners who have been there (or who are currently there)!!
Being a parent to a little one in the Neonatal Unit is a challenging thing. There is not a person in this group who would say otherwise. While all the attention is where is needs to be, on bubs, and what little is left over is generally directed at mum, it can feel like us dads and partners get left to fend for ourselves a bit.
That is not a criticism at all, its how things need to be. However, its important to acknowledge the partners and dads.
To this end, the PWHBT team is looking to organize a dads/partners event for us to get together, chat, chill, support and laugh with each other. The question is, what does this look like, what would you like it to look like?
So, this is an invite for the dads and partners out there to come along, meet some partners and dads who have been there and talk about how we want to get together and talk about stuff. In the first instance, we have decided to meet where all good bonding happens...the pub! However, the plan is to use this time to discuss a kid friendly option, kind of like a dads and partners playgroup.
So our first dads/partners event is
Sunday 31st January 2021 
For a good pub lunch in reasonable distance from most. 
Depending on numbers, lunch may be subsidized.
 Details of location and time to be confirmed shortly. 
In the meantime, if you are interested at all, please get in contact with us.
