The Father’s Playbook was developed specifically for guys in response to the lack of information for men whose partners are expecting a baby.

The foundational work on Father’s Playbook was done by the Center for Health Communication at The University of Texas at Austin. The Texas Safe Babies team at The University of Texas Health Science Center Tyler and the SAGA team at UT Austin then joined to turn this work into a fully-functioning app.

In addition to our design and app development wizards, The Father’s Playbook Team has experts in health communication, maternal and child health, and infant development.
