Dad of six and TLC star Adam Busby has already made an incredible impact due to his brave honesty on OutDaughtered — a reality show focusing on a house of all-girl quints, their big sister, and the Busby parents. These Adam Busby quotes about postpartum depression show exactly why his statements have been powerful for so many viewers, especially parents who have suffered similar circumstances with their own families. With the support of his wife Danielle Busby, he has been able to use his show as a platform for others who might need help mentally, but aren't quite sure why or how to go about securing that help yet.
Blayke, Ava, Olivia, Hazel, Riley, and Parker's dad has highlighted that paternal postpartum depression rates are under-reported as of now. According to the Center for Pediatric Research at Eastern Virginia Medical School, 10 percent of fathers reported postpartum depression, alongside 14 percent of mothers. Researchers dubbed it a "significant problem," noting that it often leads to "undesirable parent health behaviors and fewer positive parent-infant interactions." For the health of an entire family, speaking out about and addressing postpartum depression concerns is absolutely vital.
Danielle's shown her unwavering support of her husband, as has his father. The following quotes assure viewers that Bubsy's aware of this incredible system he's got going on, and he will continue working to convince others that help is possible and healing can happen.
