I can't speak as a BTDT, but this totally makes sense to me. My most serious bout of depression came in the wake of a ton of life changes all at once--so the fact that people are dealing with one of the most serious life changes of all when they becoming a parent (especially for the first time, but also again), predisposes you to deal with some depression, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman.
