Dads speak out on PPD/PND on Postpartum Progress

Throughout the past week there has been a wonderful series on the affects PPD/PND has had on partners/husbands. This series has been on Postpartum Progress, the same place our five day series on Having a Baby after PPD was on.

I have posted each day’s link below for you all. It’s well worth reading as it gives another perspective on this PMD & also insights into how our illness affects our partners. For those of you that suffered a PMD these are highly emotional pieces of writing & beautifully written.

A week later & there has been one more post, ‘For the Dads: Why you need support through her PPD too’. It’s such an important message for dads & partners. You need to remember to look after yourself too & one day down the track when the fog has lifted from your lives, you need to look after your marriage.
