New Fathers and Stepfathers Can Experience Postpartum Depression

While it is more common to associate Postpartum Depression (PPD) with mothers, new fathers and, in particular, step fathers, can also experience PPD. While the symptoms can be the same, the Nemours Foundation notes that fathers and stepfathers are more likely to experience PPD if they are:
  • with a partner who's depressed
  • ending their relationship with the mother
  • unemployed
  • poorly educated
  • socially isolated
  • under severe stress
  • in a physically aggressive relationship with the new mother


The best thing to do for fathers experiencing PPD is to first and foremost, recognize the depression and help your wife recognize that you are experiencing PPD so that you can go through treatment together. Acknowledging that men can and do experience postpartum depression is the first step in getting appropriate treatment for it and getting your family back on track.
