While we are off taking care of mum and baby postpartum, we tend to forget how dad is doing. In the postpartum period, it should be realized that both parents are sharing remarkably similar and life-altering experiences that can result in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (but might look a little different to each other).
We are fluid organisms, made up of 45-75 percent water. Just as the moon affects the tides, it affects the water in our bodies, which is filled with hormones that travel through us. It makes sense that our hormonal flow would also be affected by phases of the moon, along with our mood, energy levels, menstrual cycle, and the development of an embryo in the waters of our wombs.
