how to educate men about Post Partum Depression?
« on: July 06, 2012, 11:45:24 am »

hi mga mommies...
help naman po. concerned lang kasi ako sa nababasa ko sa fb newsfeed ko. i think one of my friend there is suffering from post partum depression. she just gave birth last May. naaawa na kasi ako sa girl. nasa Japan din sya,3 na kids niya and her hubby is working night shift. one time nagmessage ako sa husband niya na sabi ko take care of your wife, mahirap pinagdadaanan niya her kids are 9,1,and newborn. sabi ko she might suffer from PPD nga. so pls take good care of her and support her in anyway you could.
question ko is, bakit may mga lalaki na insensitive sa mga ganitong issue? i'm so blessed na si hubby ay naging supportive sa akin dahil sa tulong na rin ng MIL ko. my MIL was the one who told my husband kung ano mga pinagdadaanan at pagdadaanan ko during and after pregnancy.
ayoko naman masyado manghimasok sa buhay nila pero any ideas po para kahit papaano maiparating dun sa mister niya about PPD. not directly..pero yung patama mode. hehe....

Expect your husband to feel displaced.
 If you’re having a hard time making your husband understand what you’re going through, a visit to your OB-gyn might help.

In my opinion, kailangan iparamdam sa mga lalake na kbirtailangan nila alagaan ang mommy and baby after manganak ng mommy. Pero wag naman in a harsh and selfish way na sasabihin mong ikaw lang dapat ang inaalagaan, you also have to make them feel special. Kumbaga, you have to work together para pareho kayong wag maoverwhelm ng sobra sa bagong baby.

Gets ko naman 'tong advice na 'to pero pano kaya yung ibang mga guys na sobrang insensitive? Naaawa ako sa mga babaeng nakakapangasawa ng ganun eh. Hirap iparealize sa kanila na importanteng ok yung relationship nilang lahat sa family para lumaki na happy and emotionally healthy si baby...

Even before ako manganak my husband is aware na of the possibility na magka-PDD ako pero thank God hindi ko ito naexperience. Sa SIL and somehow konti sa MIL ako nairita. Sabi ko sa hubby ko sabihan niya mga relatives niya to be sensitive sa mga remarks nila kundi baka sila ang saksakin ko  >:(

Going back to the topic, the father shouldnt feel left out in caring of the newborn. Moms should appreciate yung every little thing na ginagawa nila para sa mom and baby. If may ginawang tama yung guy, praise him. If nagkamali, be patient and explain next time it'll be better if that stuff should be done this way.

Para sa mga super insensitive guys...hmmm, ay just tell them get lost! Hehe!

Sometime I feel like Im taking advantage of my husband, he is so understanding but then I always gets angry on him. I feel like im alone even though my family/friends are there :(

just tell him in a nice way and tell him about the danger if he will not pay attention to his wife. a gentle reminder will do
