    Swimming is really good therapy for all the things that you mention, you can even swim while not being 100% physically. Talk to somebody you trust, it can be a friend, family member or even a professional.
    Life is short, enjoy it!

    Having a new addition can be stressful. One key thing is sleep; for the baby and parents. Lack of sleep can lead to depression & anxiety. One thing the wife and I did was to take shifts. I'd take care of the baby early morning since I'd be up anyhow. She would take care of him late evening/night (she's a night owl anyhow). The rest of the time we share responsibility. It meant I had to quit gaming and messing around on the computer for a bit. But you have to give up something. That child is THE highest priority to both of you. Whatever it takes.

    For the injury part, swimming is a great idea if you can. No impact. Check with your doctor to see what they can recommend.
