PND can make you feel alone, like you are the only person going through this, that you have a type of depression that won't get better, that cannot be cured, that you will be like this forever

You are not alone                You will get better
  1. Stacey Solomon
    ‘I’d never even heard of postnatal depression. After being diagnosed by my GP, I was scared to talk to anyone or get any help. I want people to speak up aboutit and be honest about it but even I’m nervous.’
  2. Courtney Cox
    "I went through a really hard time—not right after the baby, but when [Coco] turned 6 months. I couldn't sleep," the actress said. "My heart was racing. And I got really depressed. I went to the doctor and found out my hormones had been pummeled."
  3. Luisa Zismann
    ‘I didn’t understand why I wasn’t like all the other mums, in love with my new baby. While everyone else was bonding with their child, I wanted to walk out the door and never come back. I felt so ashamed. I felt so bad that I didn’t want to wake up in the mornings. I wanted to roll over and die. It’s such a deep low.’
  4. Brooke Shields
    "If I had been diagnosed with any other disease, I would have run to get help. I would have worn it like a badge," Shields told a magazine. "I didn't at first—but finally I did fight. I survived."
  5. Hayden Panettiere
    "When they tell you about postpartum depression, you think about, 'Okay, I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure my child, I want to hurt my child'—I've never ever had those feelings, and some women do."
  6. Adele
    “My knowledge of it is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job. But I was obsessed with my child. “I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life... it can come in many different forms.”
