Study says Fathers can experience Post Partum Depression too.
An article in the LA Times cites a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association finding that 10.4% of new fathers experienced severe depression prior to or after the birth of their child.
The article claims that this is more than double the rate of depression for men in general. The author analyzed significant numbers of men in 43 distinct studies, from a number of developed nations.
Have you, or anyone close to you, ever experienced this phenomenon? If so, how severe was it and how long did it last?
