The transition to parenthood is difficult for everyone. While many new and expecting moms struggle from perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs) otherwise known as postpartum depression – their partners can too. Whether you are experiencing anxiety or depression after the birth of your child, or if your partner has been diagnosed with or is being treated for a PMAD – this is a great opportunity to meet other partners having a similar experience. The best thing for partners to do to get through this challenging time is to get the support THEY need.
