6 on Health - Dads suffering baby blues

Pregnancy can be an exciting time for new parents.

However, along with anticipation, there are also moments of uncertainty.

When you hear about the baby blues, you typically think of new moms.

However, a study shows new dads can suffer from depression as well.

The study found depression rates among men almost doubled between the third trimester of their partner's pregnancy and the baby's birth.

To counteract that, doctors say try to get enough sleep leading up to, and after, the baby is born.
