Friday Feature: Can Dads Get Postpartum Depression?
But how about dads? Can they develop postpartum depression?
According to a new study, they can. Not only that, they can also struggle with depression prenatally as well.
I don't think that's what people have in mind when they talk about sharing parenting responsibilities equally.
Why am I reading this stuff? Because I'm about to teach it in my child development class.
Why am I sharing it? Because doing so might help just one new parent figure out she -- or he -- is not alone, and put her -- or him -- on the road to recapturing the joy that really can exist in those exhausting, exhilarating early days.
