Our theme this month is around postnatal depression, however it would be an injustice if we ignored the other side of the matter. Males in general are forgotten when it comes to mental health, and fathers are totally neglected when it comes to pregnancy and related issues. However, we want to change this. Fathers should hold the same significance and importance as the mother when a new life is brought into the world. We agree they don’t have to go through the physical aspect of pregnancy, but they invest emotionally and mentally just as much. They may even have external worries as a male figure that females do not necessarily have to worry about.
Join us and Abu Amaanah, a young father and entrepreneur as well as a fatherhood and lifestyle blogger where we discuss the struggles of fatherhood, paternal depression and the importance of preparation.
