Dads involved pre-natal more likely to stay involved

The study shows that fathers who help with their child's prenatal care are more likely to be around for the long haul.

Examples of involvement include buying things for the baby or being present during birth.

The conclusion is based on an ongoing study of 5-thousand couples.
