Episode 189: Birth Trauma for Dads (Epilogue)

Birth in the News:
Nonprofit Ordered To Pay $75,000 Over ‘No Pregnancy In The Workplace’ Policy

Tonight Dana and Ryan talked about an important side of the conversation on postpartum mental health, and that's how birth affects dads. 10% of men worldwide showed signs of depression known as paternal postpartum depression or PPPD from the first trimester of their partner’s pregnancy through six months after the child was born. That number goes up to 26% when the child is between 3-6 months old--a rate which is twice the rate of depression typically seen in men.

We were joined by Dr. Will Courtenay, also known as “The Men’s Doc." Dr. Courtenay is an internationally recognized expert in men’s health and in helping men, boys and fathers. The American Psychological Association calls him “a leading psychologist in the field of masculinity.” He is a psychotherapist in Oakland, California, and author of the book, Dying to Be Men. He has served on the clinical faculty of the University of California, San Francisco, Medical School and McLean Hospital at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Courtenay is the founder of several websites for men, including SadDaddy.com, which provides information and resources for fathers experiencing postpartum depression. Dr. Courtenay gave us some insight into postpartum depression and the unique experience fathers have when they are suffering from depression. He also discussed resources for fathers to cope and seek help.

Next we spoke to Martin Dahlborg. Martin is the father of 3 children, aged 10, 6, and 4 and married to licensed midwife, Heidi Dahlborg, founder of Rosemary Birthing Home. In their first pregnancy, the couple planned a homebirth that resulted in a hospital transfer, an experience that was difficult for both mother and father. Martin discussed his family's experiences as well as ways they learned to cope, adapt, and grow.

Episode 188: Secondary Infertility (Epilogue)

Birth in the News:
Lack of oxygen prime suspect in infant deaths
The infant gut microbiome: New studies on its origins and how it's knocked out of balance

Join the May 28 International Day of Action for Women's Health Campaign!

Tonight's topic was secondary infertility, which RESOLVE defines as the inability to become pregnant, or to carry a pregnancy to term, following the birth of one or more biological children. Dana was joined by Barbara Collura, who joined RESOLVE: The National Infertility Association in September 2004 as the Director, Chapter & Constituent Services. In April 2007, Barbara was named Chief Staff Officer of RESOLVE. As President/CEO, she represents RESOLVE at a number of national conferences, committees and organizations including the National Committee on the Oversight of Assisted Reproductive Technologies, the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, and the National Health Council. As the official spokesperson for RESOLVE, Barbara speaks at conferences and events on a variety of topics related to infertility. Barbara is passionate about RESOLVE's mission as the organization was a source of support and information during her own battle with infertility. Barbara gave us some insight into secondary infertility, and how it affects mothers both physically and emotionally. 

Next up we spoke to Amy Wruble, a parenting writer who contributes regularly to Lifetime Moms, Mom.me, Momtastic and The Huffington Post. She also blogs at CarriageBeforeMarriage.com, where she wrote about her struggle with secondary infertility. She is now the mother of two daughters, a 4-year-old and a newborn. Amy told us a bit about her experience with secondary infertility and ways that she overcame the physical and emotional effects of the experience.
