Many fathers and partners experience common mental health problems, such as symptoms of anxiety or depression during pregnancy or after having a baby. This may be a way of you adjusting to your sense of responsibility or worry about financial pressures. This does not mean you are a bad parent.
Your partner is likely to be your main source of emotional support, and if she is feeling preoccupied or low you may feel stuck with no-one to talk to. Talk to your midwife, health visitor or GP about how you are feeling. Symptoms such as anxiety or depression are very common, and can be easy to treat.
You may also be offered support from family and friends who've been in the same situation; whether this is emotional or practical help around making meals or helping with household tasks, this may be helpful to support you all.
