Becoming a Parent: Joy and Challenge

Becoming a parent is an amazing time of life, yet it can also be extremely challenging. Life completely changes once you have kids. Personal time, bonding with your partner, and your hobbies might have to take a backseat.

Mental Health of New Dads

Did you know that 1 in 10 new dads experience mental health issues? We believe the number might be even higher. After having kids, couples often find themselves feeling disconnected. The constant fatigue, stress, and differing opinions regarding parenting can lead to conflicts.

Many dads start to feel isolated and lose their sense of identity. Some might even question their competence as fathers.
