If you thought that only women suffer depression during pregnancy as well as post delivery, you may be wrong.
According to a new study, would-be fathers who experienced stress or had poor health during their partner’s pregnancy, too may be at an increased risk of developing depression.
The findings showed that apart from depression during the third trimester of their partners’ pregnancy, they can also suffer post-partum depression – that occurs after childbirth – similar to women who gave birth, though their bodies do not go through the same sort of changes.
