Last week, the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study stating that approximately ten percent of new dads experience postpartum depression.
We speak with the author behind that study, Dr. James Paulson of the Eastern Virginia Medical School. He explains how postpartum depression in men differs from the same condition in women, whether hormonal fluctuations play a role in how it manifests itself, and what treatment options are available.
We also talk with Joel Schwartzberg. Humorist, writer, and author of “The 40-Year-Old Version: Humoirs of a Divorced Dad,” Joel suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of his son.
