CONTEXT It is well established that maternal prenatal and postpartum depression is prevalent and has negative personal, family, and child developmental outcomes. [...] Key MethodDATA SOURCES Studies that documented depression in fathers between the first trimester and the first postpartum year were identified through MEDLINE, PsycINFO, EMBASE, Google Scholar, dissertation abstracts, and reference lists for the period between January 1980 and October 2009. Expand
Prevalence and Factors Associated With Postpartum Depression in Fathers: A Regional, Longitudinal Study in Japan.
TLDR
Only fathers' history of psychiatric treatment and depressive symptoms during pregnancy were associated with paternal depressive symptoms in the postnatal period, adding to the growing body of evidence on prevalence and indicating that assessment and support for fathers are important starting in pregnancy. Expand
The Relationship Between Paternal and Maternal Depression During the Perinatal Period: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Paternal depression showed positive correlations with maternal depression across the perinatal period, and increasing evidence for implications of parental depression for child development warrants further scientific attention. Expand
Prevalence of prenatal and postpartum depression in fathers: A comprehensive meta-analysis of observational surveys.
TLDR
This meta-analysis found that the prevalence of prenatal and postpartum depression in fathers was relatively common and regular screening, effective prevention and appropriate treatment need to be implemented in this population. Expand
The course and interrelationship of maternal and paternal perinatal depression
TLDR
In both expecting/new mothers and fathers, depression demonstrates a stable pattern of occurrence and symptom severity between 28-month gestation and 6 months postpartum, although prenatal maternal depression is not predictive of symptom change in fathers, mothers with prenatally depressed partners showed significant worsening in overall symptom severity during the first six post partum months. Expand
Prevalence of paternal depression in pregnancy and the postpartum: An updated meta-analysis.
TLDR
Paternal depression was present in 8% of men in the included studies and future screening policies and interventions should consider moderating risk factors for depression throughout the transition to parenthood. Expand
The effects of paternal depression on child and adolescent outcomes: A systematic review.
TLDR
Paternal mental health screening during pregnancy is necessary in order to identify and prevent depression negatively impacting offspring functioning, and including both parents in this process should encourage the alleviation of the environmental mediators which dominate the negative association outlined within the review. Expand
Psychosocial factors associated with paternal postnatal depression.
TLDR
These findings emphasize the need to consider a set of psychosocial factors when examining fathers' mental health in the first year of a child's birth and suggest health professionals can enhance parenting efficacy and alleviate parenting distress by supporting fathers' unique experiences and addressing their needs. Expand
