And this rate can increase to 1 in 2 for the fathers when the mother is suffering from Postpartum Depression.
are less likely to bond with their baby
are less likely to positively interact with their children eg playing games, bathing them, reading to them
are more likely to spank their children
are more prone to marital conflict in the home
are more likely to engage in substance abuse and domestic violence
Did you know that most divorces happen due to problems that started in the postpartum period?
“Psychotherapist and marriage researcher John Gottman studied couples from the newlywed period through the transition to parenthood.
He discovered most couple break-ups within the first seven years were because they became parents.
A staggering 67% of couples in the study reported a decline in relationship satisfaction after the arrival of the first baby”
this doesn’t have to be you and your family.
When couples take time to learn about marriage and childbirth early and take the time to learn to improve communication and conflict resolution skills, this can prevent trauma & depression, build a healthy marriage & strong family.
