Dads get baby blues, too

Really important to recognise that dads can be anxious and depressed as well as mums around the time of birth – this study suggests lack of social support one of the risk factors, perhaps more antenatal education targeted at dads would help with this?

A new study shows that fathers as well as mothers can suffer from anxiety and depression around the birth of a new baby; around 1 in 10 men are affected.
