Men and Postnatal Depression Episode 104, July 31 2018
This week Andy Grant is joined by leadership and communications consultant, Darren Horne, to share his call to adventure including postnatal depression and being a dad. Fatherhood isn’t always a magical and loving experience from the get-go. Postnatal, or postpartum, depression can hit men as well as women.
“Our parents did not bring us into the world to work 40 – 50 hours a week doing a job we hate.” ~Darren Horne
