Guest: Thomas Newmark
After a baby is born, postpartum depression often presents another hurdle on a woman's path back to normalcy. Not as common, or not as commonly recognized, is her male partner's susceptibility to a form of postpartum depression. In what ways can we compare this phenomenon in men to what we see in women? And for those men who may suffer from it, how can we help them get through it? Host Dr. Jennifer Shu gets the answers from Dr. Thomas Newmark, professor and chief of psychiatry at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in Camden, New Jersey.
