Postpartum Depression in men

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - It is something new parents are always on guard for shortly after a new baby comes into the world.

Postpartum Depression is always a threat to new moms, but there is now evidence that it could be a problem for new dads as well.

Dr. David Boyd is on the case at Family Practice Specialists of Richmond.

Postpartum depression is increasingly recognized in men.

It happens most frequently in the period of time between three to six months after the baby is born.

See your doctor if fatigue, loss of interests in activities and sadness persist.
