Advice and care for a new dad?

DH and I are having out first child in the next few weeks. He's great and I feel really well supported by him but also by my family, friends and all health professionals! Basically everyone is making sure I'm ok and no one is really asking him. This seems so sad to me, dads are as important as mums. I want him to know he can turn to me for anything (I've had loads of friends with PND so know I have someone to turn to if I'm overwhelmed or don't bond etc) but is seems no one offers this to men and I don't want him to feel alone if this does happen for him. (Most of his family have died and he's moved around a lot so no really close friends)

Do any other dads have any advice? What would have helped in those first early days?
