"I think I really started to enjoy being a mom fully when he was probably 10 months old. I had stopped breastfeeding. I returned to work. I started to slowly feel a difference at 8 months old, and by a year I was a completely different person.
I loved being a mom. And I wanted another baby.
There was a little bit more pressure with the second pregnancy because Emilie is my wife's biological daughter. Noah is my biological son. Emilie was our only girl embryo. I felt like if I miscarried and I fell down the stairs or I ate something I wasn't supposed to eat, I was like my wife is trusting me with her embryo.
During my second pregnancy, I told my doctors that I’d had severe postpartum depression. Not a single person asked me about it at my follow-up appointments. I needed someone to check on me. I needed to be asked about it. I need someone to say, 'Hey, are you okay?'"
