About Postpartum Depression

 

Postpartum Men:

Approximately 10% of fathers get depressed after the birth of their child and that percentage increases up to 50% if their partner is depressed as well.  Fathers also go through life changing experiences, pressures and stresses during the postpartum period and should be heard and supported.
