“I felt worthless. Alone. Paralysed by anxiety.”One father admitted he suffered from depression after the couple’s first baby was born.“It’s very embarrassing. You have to be the strong one for the mother. You don’t sleep a lot, but you also can’t complain because you are not the one breastfeeding.”Because of this stigma, very few men speak about feeling depressed after their children are born.Dr. Scott Bea, psychologist, says men can start experiencing feelings of depression from as early as the first trimester.This could be due to increased financial stress, your relationship with your partner changing or if you have a history of depression.You are not alone.
