Depressive symptoms were assessed in 86 couples during pregnancy and after childbirth. Although 59.3% (N = 51) of the couples contained at least one symptomatic spouse during the transition to parenthood, both spouses were symptomatic in only 11.1% (N = 4) of the affected couples during pregnancy and 12.5% (N = 4) after childbirth.
