What can I do to support my partner? Am I the only guy who’s struggling with becoming a dad? Join Chat with an Expert phone forum the first Monday of every month for reliable information, support, and resources.
This is a place where dads, partners, extended family members or other support people, and professionals can find some answers and support from an expert – and from other men. You’ll find honest and compassionate talk about the adjustment to parenthood, information about how fatherhood can affect you, and some helpful advice. http://www.postpartum.net/chat-with-an-expert/chat-with-an-expert-for-dads/
It’s not ALL about the Moms! Finally some time for dads to connect about what it’s like to be a father – the rewards and the challenges! Society expects a lot from modern dads, but hasn’t caught up to honoring their unique needs for support. http://www.harmonymama.com/baby/groups-events/dads-group/

"...As many as 1 in 4 dads do experience postpartum depression. Having no visible examples in our culture of men like this, a father with postpartum depression usually suffers in isolation – sure that he’s the only one. And, of course – with no examples to look to – he doesn’t have any idea what to do about it." http://postpartummen.com
