A Dad’s View of Postpartum Depression

Share Button

We don’t have as much opportunity to hear from dads as we do from moms suffering from postpartum depression. We don’t often get an inside look on how dads view PPD, what it feels like for them and what they think is happening to their wives.

Today, though, you will. Click this link for a great post from the blog Changing the Universe where dad Tim shares what it has felt like to see his wife go through PPD, and how it has impacted his own thinking and behavior.

Great post.

If you’re a dad looking for more information and ways to help your wife or partner through postpartum depression or anxiety, click here for the Help for Fathers category of stories on Postpartum Progress.
