The BMJ has reported on a case of male postpartum psychosis. The fact that men can experience this severe form of PND makes it even more clear why we MUST diagnose & support these dads. This is a real phenomenon, time to take it seriously.

'Machin calls us to reimagine the role of the modern father, think differently about sex & gender as they relate to parenthood & explore what it means to be a family, to be social' Thanks for summing up my work so brilliantly

This is such crucial work. If we intervene early and support parents and their children as they grow we can significantly increase the chance of a positive and healthy future.

Hotdesking is evil. Introduced by someone who has zero understanding of human behaviour and needs. We all need a space to call our own.

Excellent interview & discussion with new dads on . The challenges of the first year, dealing with feeling excluded & finding your role, the roller coaster of emotions that lets you experience guilt & relief at the same time.

We always say boys need their dads to be role models but it is increasingly clear how important a role model & influence they are to their daughters.

Those early weeks are so critical for building the bond that is critical to you, your baby and your family, made even harder when your interaction with your baby is sometimes difficult. The very least we can do is support parents and their babies by giving them more time.
