Abstract

While father engagement in infant care is widely advocated and research demonstrates that it contributes to improved outcomes, few approaches engage fathers, especially racial/ethnic minority underserved fathers, during maternity care. This study protocol describes the text4FATHER’s feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy trial from mid-pregnancy through two months postnatal age.
