Reply To: Postnatal/Postpartum depression in men

Kane Whiteman

Yeh I did/do 6 years ago when my daughter was first born I fell pretty hard. My wife said to me “you know men get post natal depression too” I thought she was crazy. But after 6 years of consistent depression followed by a cataclysmic breakdown which resulted in me spending 2 years in and out of mental health hospitals countless hours of therapy, I realized that although I had depression consistently on and off my whole life it only really kicked off after my first daughter was born.
