Paternal Psychosis After Baby Born

A large number of studies have investigated the psychological disorders occurred in postpartum women, and found that postpartum psychosis is common in new mothers.

However, the situation of paternal psychological status after they had their first baby is not assessed. The investigators hypothesized that they had a high occurrence of paternal psychosis after first baby born. In addition, different factors might influence its onset and development in new fathers.
