Summary

Fatherhood and identification with father’s role is an important period in human life; the issue of parenthood and fatherhood is very relevant particularly at present when the society faces family crisis. The article summarizes the information and suggestions on the importance, characteristics and experiencing of active fathering in individual periods – during pregnancy, delivery and shortly after delivery. In connection with reducing time of stay in the hospital facility after delivery, there is very little time for the parents to get sufficient information and instructions to care for their baby and to strengthen their parent competences. A solution could consist in improved prenatal preparation that should be aimed at preparation for the delivery and parenthood and that would pay more attention not only to prepare the pregnant woman but focus more on the couple and on the needs of each of the parents.

Keywords: prenatal preparation; pregnancy; delivery; post-delivery period; fathering
