1 in 7 Men Suffers From Postpartum Depression

Those who do suffer from it have a 20% chance of experiencing it with another pregnancy.

You have a new life on your hands that’s relying on you, but your emotions don’t match the expectation. You feel emotionally disconnected from both your child and yourself.

You’re not alone.

Postpartum depression affects over 3 million men in the U.S. each year. Though common, PPD can have significant consequences for both the new mother and child. In fact, suicide accounts for 20% of postpartum deaths and holds the second most common cause of mortality in postpartum men.

It causes feelings of emotional disconnect from what society expects a mother to feel at the postpartum period.

Common PPD Symptoms Include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Insomnia
  • Intense anxiety or irritability
  • Overwhelming fatigue
  • Loss of interest in sex
  • Severe mood swings
  • Feelings of shame or guilt
  • Lack of joy in life
  • Withdrawal from friends and family
  • Difficulties bonding with your baby
  • Thoughts of harming your baby

It doesn’t have to be this way! You don’t have to suffer!
