Postnatal depression affects as many as 1 in every 10 women within a year of giving birth, but it can also affect dads and partners as well. Up to one in 25 new dads/partners experience depression or a problem with their emotional wellbeing after having a baby.
Many new dads or partners think that they can’t talk about how they’re feeling because they need to appear strong for their partner. It can also feel like there isn’t an opportunity for dads and partners to ask for help.
If you’re struggling, you’re not alone. Finding the right support is not only important for you but for the wellbeing of your family as well.
