Anybody can get mental health problems when having a baby, at any time of life, irrespective of gender, age, culture or social background and this is no less true of dads/partners.
Perinatal mental health problems are far more common than you think. In fact whilst one in 5 new mums experience them, up to one in 10 new dads or partners are also likely to develop them. For this reason Acacia has been supporting dads and partners for many years.
