Abstract [en]

This study reviewed the literature concerning the involvement by European men in pregnancy and childbirth and examined how this is related to health outcomes; for the men themselves, their partners, and their children. The study also reflects on the literature in relation to other existing research on men, masculinities, and fatherhood. The literature review support the idea that the father’s involvement during pregnancy and delivery can positively influence health outcomes for the man, his partner, and their children. However, little help is offered to the majority of men regarding parenting. It is therefore crucial for the maternal and child healthcare services to develop new ways of reaching out to men. In order to develop new knowledge earlier research needs to be complemented with a multidisciplinary approach where the existing research material, on social science regarding men, masculinities, and fatherhood is also taken into consideration.
