What is a dad to do when his wife has postpartum depression?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 10/22/2018

Often, when the new mum is struggling with postnatal depression, her partner finds himself in a complicated situation where he doesn't know how to react or what to do. Firstly, it is key to be supportive and never judge her actions. We recommend that they visit a doctor or psychologist as well in order to learn about the best way to react behind baby blues or postpartum depression, and be helpful. For women in such situation, having a supportive patient by their side is essential.

Additionally, some may develop postpartum depression as well (known as Paternal Postnatal Depression or PPND).
