Paternal Postnatal Depression

Nov 11, 2020, 12:05 AM
In today’s episode I’m chatting to Viren Swami FHEA CPsychol AFBPsS, Professor of Social Psychology at Anglia Ruskin University.

I saw Viren talk openly about his experience of paternal postnatal depression on our local news and, as a topic I haven’t heard covered very much, I really wanted to have this conversation. We mention a few places you can find support if any of the things Viren talks about ring true for you or your partner. They include Pandas who have a Dad’s only Facebook Group and Father’s Reaching Out. If you want to contact Viren directly you can find his email address here.
 
I also mention Nick Finney’s book, The Bumps Ahead, which is a great book about infertility and adoption from the dad's point of view. 
 
If you want to find out more about the work I do including the Hang Out, plus my recent survey results please visit www.catstrawbridge.com.
