According to a new study, new fathers have an increased risk of depression.
Researchers have known for a long time about the risk of depression in mothers and the hormone changes that might cause these symptoms.
Well, it seems that dads also have to deal with it, especially if they feel stressed or are in poor health.
The study authors hope that these findings shine a light on a problem that hasn’t gotten much attention in the past – and help in putting together intervention efforts for expectant fathers. (New Zealand Herald)
