Hi Gia, thanks for a nice article. Could you share more about the proper support system your wife had with the first child?

Hi! Thanks for your kind words! We were living in New York, US when we had our first child. The support system there was quite extensive:

- OBGYN screening for postpartum depression signs during pregnancy

- Screening for postpartum depression during our child’s regular checkup at 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9 months after birth

- Officer from Women, Infant, Children (WIC) program called my wife every 3 months to check

- We were also less tired and had more time to talk when we only had one kid

Hope that helps!
