In honor of Father’s Day 2012, I had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Will Courtenay of www.saddaddy.com regarding Paternal Postnatal Depression (PNDD).

As Dr. Courtenay begins in this interview:


“Paternal Postnatal Depression (PPND) refers to a depression that a father experiences within the first year after his child is born. PPND is different from the “daddy blues” – which many new dads can experience. With normal postpartum stress or the daddy blues, a father’s going to feel better when he gets a little extra sleep, when he goes to the gym, or when he has lunch with a buddy……”


The rest of the two interviews were published on Lamaze’s Science and Sensibility blog in two parts.
