Often times we focus so much on the mental and emotional well being of new mothers. But what happens when new fathers experience depression? How do we support them? How do we survive?
Below, a brave member of our Coco Moon ‘ohana, Mitzi, shares her experience with Paternal Postpartum Depression (PPPD) - the weight of bearing this disease, how her family is getting through it, and her realization of the true strength and selflessness of women.
