Adele stuggled with post natal depression

Adele has revealed her problems with post natal depression after the birth of her son Angelo.

Whatever walk of life you are from PND can be a huge struggle. With more celebrities talking about PND we hope that it encourages more open dialogue for those that suffer in silence.

Following are a few excerpts from the interview she gave to Vanity Fair.

She told Vanity Fair: “My knowledge of postpartum-or post-natal, as we call it in England-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.

“Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever the f*** I want without my baby. A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, ‘I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it’.”

She told the magazine: “I think it’s the bravest thing not to have a child; all my friends and I felt pressurised into having kids, because that’s what adults do.

“I love my son more than anything, but on a daily basis, if I have a minute or two, I wish I could do whatever the f*** I wanted, whenever I want. Every single day I feel like that.”
